Born in 1954, in Hollywood, California, Jason was a standout player at Cal-State Northridge. He was selected in the fourth round by the Detroit Tigers and began his Major League baseball career on April 23, 1976. Jason along with fellow rookie Mark “The Bird” Fidrych made an instant impact. Jason was selected to the All-Star team three times; first with Detroit in 1977 and again in 1978. It was during this time with the Detroit Tigers that Jason earned his nickname, "Roof Top" due to his ability to hit balls over the towering right field roof of Tiger Stadium.
