Schuyler Koven is passionate about airplanes and classic cars, and is particularly drawn to older model Ferrari Testarosas and Porsche 911 Carreras. He is also a lifelong baseball fan who grew up following the New York Yankees and regularly attended games at Yankee Stadium. Schuyler Koven is a particular fan of Yankee legends such as leadoff hitter and base stealer Rickey Henderson and cleanup power hitter Reggie Jackson.
Mr. Koven admires Reggie Jackson for his hitting ability and stellar performances throughout his decorated career. Known as “Mr. October” for his postseason exploits, Reggie Jackson achieved 563 home runs over his more than two-decade career. Reggie Jackson is best remembered in New York for his explosive performance in the 1977 and 1978 World Series. In the 1977 series, he hit five home runs and batted .450, and the following year he bested this achievement by hitting three consecutive home runs against the Dodgers in the championship-clinching game. Schuyler Koven has obtained the autograph of Reggie Jackson, as well as Mr. October’s old Yankee teammate Chris Chambliss.
