Reggie Jackson hit some monster home runs.

He also struck out a lot — a major league record 2,597 times over a 21-year career.

Babe Ruth set the major league record for home runs four times between 1919 and 1927. The 60 hit in 1927 stood for 33 years.

The Bambino went deep a combined 202 times those four seasons. He fanned 308 times.

Players who hit for power strike out a lot. It happens. It’s just part of it. Then you come across someone who knocks you for a loop the way McKenzie Henry did this past season.
