On September 3, 1985 — Future Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, with his 525th career round-tripper, becomes the first major leaguer to collect one hundred home runs for three different teams. The California outfielder, who hit 269 during his ten seasons with Oakland, and 144 in five years with the Yankees, hits two homers to go over the century mark playing for the Angels in the team’s 14-8 loss to Detroit.
