On this day... it is raining Reggie bars

April 13th, 1978. It was Opening Day at Yankee Stadium and the Chicago White Sox were in town. Reggie Jackson is the toast of the town fresh off his three HR performance to end the 1977 World Series. In his first AB, Reggie hits three-run homer off of Wilbur Wood, his fourth consecutive round-tripper at Yankee Stadium. The game is delayed as the crowd celebrates by showering the field with the Reggie! Bars given to every fan entering the game. Reggie grounded out in his next plate appearance. The Yankees won 4-2.
