In summer Jack patrolled the left field position and due to his long-ball hitting ability placed fifth in the batting order. In 1923, he was a very important cog in the Middleton team that marched all the way to the Nova Scotia Senior Baseball Championship disposing of Kentville, Liverpool, and finally the perennial powerhouse Springhill Fence Busters in the finals. In the final game, Jack batted a respectable 2 for 4.
In winter Jack patrolled the blue-line but scored many a goal after superb rink length rushes from his defensive position. A stalwart member of many Maple Leaf teams, he was an excellent skater and very strong, reported to be the most outstanding defenceman in the Valley Hockey League from 1928-1934. In a pre-game warm up he once shot the puck from the south end of the old Middleton rink into the bandbox area way up in the north end!
Jack, along with brother Harold, joined their father’s business enterprises under the name of G.N. Reagh and Sons. They operated a farm machinery business, feed supply, and farms located in Brooklyn, as well as being instrumental in the opening of food distributors T.R.A, now a part of the giant Sobey empire. Jack was truly a two-sport star in the laurels of Middleton Sporting History. He passed away in Middleton on March 22, 1974.
