Jackson Joins Espn Crew

By Compiled From Wire Services

Reggie Jackson is joining ESPN as an analyst, hoping the national exposure helps him fulfill his dream of running a major league baseball team.

Jackson, a special adviser to the New York Yankees since 1993, said that appearing on the all-sports network will allow him to showcase his knowledge of the game.

Jackson, 51, will make his debut Friday in Anaheim, when the Angels host the Seattle Mariners.

A consortium of businessmen paid $306,130 last weekend in Columbus, Ohio, for the uniform believed to be the one worn by Lou Gehrig during his farewell speech in 1939.

Gehrig, dying from a rare nerve disease, said goodbye to New York fans in a moving speech at Yankee Stadium on July 4, 1939.
