Mr. October at Steelers game

Donnie Shell and Reggie Jackson

Former New York Yankees right fielder and Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson is at Heinz Field for the Steelers-Patriots game.

Jackson has been a Steelers fan since the early 70s when he and former running back Franco Harris became friends.

Jackson has followed the Steelers since then and had a chance to talk to some of the former players who are in for alumni weekend, as well as current players including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

“Ben is tough,” said Jackson. “Ben is great under pressure. He has been successful. When you have him back there on your team you know you are going to get a great game and some great plays.”
