VIDEO: When Reggie Jackson stole home in A's-Tigers ALCS game
Back in the 1972 ALCS, Reggie Jackson stole home, helping the A's topple the Tigers in the decisive Game 5.
The Tigers and Athletics are set to square off in ALDS play Friday night with Game 1. The two clubs have some good postseason history, including an epic five-game ALDS last season, in which four games were decided by two runs or less.
They also have the 1972 ALCS in common, when the A's took Game 5 (LCS were only five-game series back then) on the strength of future Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson becoming the first man to ever steal home in the history of the LCS round.
Here's a video look back from MLB.com:
As noted in the video, Jackson badly injured his hamstring on the play and wouldn't return -- not even for the World Series. The A's still won it all, though, beating the Reds in seven games.
