Exactly who does Ross Newhan think he is kidding?
In the June 21 Times, he shows a chart claiming the Angels' Reggie Jackson has averaged one home run every 15.24 at-bats.
When he hit his 513th home run, it came with 8,820 at-bats. Like some one once said, you could look it up--and I did.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Reader Blue's arithmetic is correct. However, the error was made by The Times' sports copy desk, not Newhan.
