Former Oriole pitching coach passes away

Recommended Posts

Yes, he was the pitching coach of the (Why Not) 1989 Orioles, and continued in that position for two more seasons.

My brother was and still is a big Mets fan.  I can remember going with him to see a doubleheader at Shea Stadium between the Mets and the Milwaukee Braves on July 26, 1964.

Jackson started the first game for the Mets and in the second inning, he whacked a home run off no less a pitcher than Warren Spahn.  I always called him "Slugger Al" after that.

It was the only home run he ever hit in the major leagues.

The doubleheader is one the Mets' pitching staff would probably like to forget.  Milwaukee won both games, by scores of 11-7 and 15-10.
