A batting helmet belonging to Reggie Jackson of the minor league
Kansas A’s in 1967 has been sold to raise money for Lodi’s Support
Our Troops organization.
The helmet was in the possession of Jody Ives, who played with
Jackson in 1967. Ives’ locker was next to Jackson’s and at the last
game Ives took Jackson’s batting helmet and told Jackson he was
going to be a famous baseball player. The next year Jackson moved
up to Major League Baseball and the rest is history.
