ANGELS NOTEBOOK; EDMONDS GETS REGGIE'S BEST PITCH.



Byline: Joe Haakenson Staff Writer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Reggie Jackson
    Reginald Martinez "Reggie" Jackson (born May 18 1946), nicknamed "Mr. October" for his clutch hitting in the postseason, is a former Major League Baseball right fielder who played for five different teams from 1967 to 1987.

    Jackson is involved in a variety of business ventures and his stay in Arizona is business-related. But he stopped by the Angels' clubhouse Monday morning to visit some old friends and give center fielder Jim Edmonds some food for thought.

    Jackson told Edmonds that New York New York, state, United States

     by the Yankees, but so far they have been unable to acquire him in a trade. Edmonds, though, can go wherever he wants after the season when he becomes a free agent, and Jackson made it clear to Edmonds that opportunities would be endless if he were successful with the Yankees.

    ``The Yankees are world champions,'' Jackson said. ``It ain't a bad place to play. As long as (George) Steinbrenner owns the team, they're going to contend.''

    Dealing with Steinbrenner, Jackson said, is not so difficult, as long as one understands the hierarchy.

    ``It's easy to know the flow chart,'' Jackson said. ``We have The Boss up here, and then there's everybody else. You could be a vice president or work on the grounds crew, you're the same. I have a big title, but no power. When I played, I had big power but no title.''
