VIDEO: Baseball Legend Reggie Jackson Goes Deep in New Hard-Hitting Documentary
5-time World Series winner’s doc hits Amazon March 24March 10, 2023
Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson opens up about his unparalleled life and career in the official trailer for his upcoming documentary “Reggie,” arriving March 24.
Directed by Alex Stapleton (“Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea”), the intimate portrait offers a firsthand account of how the trailblazing Black athlete became a New York Yankees legend on the field while commanding dignity, respect, and a seat at the table off it.
“I wasn’t liked because I’m the truth, and the truth is painful,” Jackson, dubbed Mr. October for his clutch performance in the 1977 World Series, says at one point in the clip (above). “I was angry because I constantly fought an uphill battle. Once I was on the field, I felt like I was in charge,” he adds.
The film, which features interviews with superstars ranging from NBA icon Bill Russell to fellow Yankees greats Derek Jeter and Aaron Judge, also shines a light on some of Jackson’s most infamous feuds. As Stern Show fans remember, Mr. October sat down with Howard in 2009 and covered some of the same ground. See what he said about his many encounters with Yankees manager Billy Martin (below).
“Reggie” hits Amazon Prime Video on Friday, March 24.
