"He (Jackie Hernandez) reminded me a lot of another shortstop whom I played with in 1970 to 1972, Dave Concepcion in Cincinnati . Balls hit on the ground over my head, at my head, through my legs that I knew were hits into center field, Jackie was there to catch them. I didn't know how at the time, but I came to realize he really knew the game. He was the soul of the club, keeping everybody loose, but an intense competitor." - Wayne Simpson (Rory Costello, Jackie Hernandez , SABR Baseball Biography)

Jackie Hernandez, on October 3, 1965, became the last LOS ANGELES Angels player to wear #12 in a regular season game, since the team changed their name for the upcoming season. When he took the field again, on April 12, 1966, he became the first CALIFORNIA Angels player to wear #12 . Three years later, on April 8, 1969 , more numerical history as he became the first Kansas City Royals player to ever wear #24 !

Did you know that Jackie Hernandez only started 75 games at shortstop with the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates , but during the 1971 World Series , he was chosen over Gene Alley (108 games at short), appearing in all seven games, starting six of them, and not committing a single error? Trivia time: Who was the Final Out in that Fall Classic?
