Fergie Jenkins was a pitcher who played with cubs for most of his career.
He went to three All-Star Games and won a Sai Young Award in 1971, becoming the first Canadian and young Harler to receive this honor.
In seven different seasons, he has won at least 20 games and has won the National League several times.
Back in the day he was a true workhorse
Jenkins was the epitome of an “old-fashioned” starting pitcher, often crossing distances in a particular game.
He is a symbol for black players and one of the most talented pitchers to jump in the Major League heap, so he deserves the recognition he deserves.
A member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame since 1991, Jenkins completed his playing days in 1983 with a 3.34 ERA, 284-226 win-loss record and 3,192 strikeouts.
He is a member of both the Cubs and the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.
Wrigley Field should have a full presence on Friday, as they honor one of the franchise giants; One of those heroes in winning the two most iconic Cube World Series: 1908 and 2016.
