Happy Birthday #18–
When we look back, there are just so many special memories that we shared with Jackie Rexrode, not only did he help open AZWOB, but he also helped develop our hitting philosophy with PK.
Both Rex and PK learned hitting from Rex’s father Jack, which later evolved into their own when combined with knowledge from the D-back’s, Dodger’s, and Angel’s.
Training together before every spring training, both players were speedy bunter blue collar scrappers, who both hit left and threw right, a rare combination. The two pushed each other to become better players, which forged a strong friendship.
In Honor of Jackie the PVCC Puma will be using Custom Rex #18 bats for the upcoming season.
With over 2000+ Minor League plate appearances Rexrode had a .300/.419/.372 slash line with over 111 stolen bases.
He is survived by his two wonderful sons Jaxon and Jaiden.
All these wonderful memories are now with us as we celebrate your birthday. We love and miss you so much!
