Fergie Jenkins Baseball HOF Stats Bat
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1991
Primary team: Chicago Cubs
Primary position: Pitcher
Ferguson “Fergie” Jenkins originally signed with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1962, but didn’t find great success until the Chicago Cubs took him out of the bullpen and converted him into a starting pitcher five years later.
His best year came in 1971, when Jenkins was the National League Cy Young Award winner. He went 24-13, throwing a complete game in 30 of his 39 starts, walked 37 and struck out 263 in 325 innings. Jenkins also became the first Cubs pitcher and the first Canadian to ever win the Cy Young.
In 1974 with the Texas Rangers, he had a career-high 25 wins, and became the first baseball player to win the Lou Marsh Trophy, an award given each year to Canada’s top athlete. He was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987.
As a hockey, basketball and baseball player growing up, Jenkins eventually found a focus, but never completely gave up other sports. In fact, he played with the Harlem Globetrotters during the baseball off-season on multiple occasions. (bi0graphy – baseballhall.org)
