In a Major League Baseball season with more than its share of drama and a little history – the Red Sox became the first team to go from worst to first for the second time in four seasons while the Dodgers set a team record by winning a fourth consecutive N.L. West title – it's easy to imagine a playoff season filled with thrills.
Mr. October himself, Reggie Jackson, was a playoff hitting machine, leading the Athletics to three straight World Series titles (1972-74) and the Yankees to two in a row (1977-78). But in Reggie's shadow stand a handful of lesser-known players who had one unexpected great October during their careers. And that one great month often led to a World Series ring.
With all due respect to Mr. October, we chose instead, to celebrate those who could be known as Mr. One-Hit Wonder.
