Happy # 77 to Fergie Jenkins


We remember Ferguson Jenkins, one of my favorite pitchers.     He was born in Ontario on this day in 1943.

Jenkins won 284 games, completed 267, threw 49 shutouts plus 3,192 K's.    

His best years were with the Cubs (1966-73).   His best season was with Texas in 1974 when he won 25 and completed 29!  What a career!

Wonder how many more games he would have won with a winning team?  

Fergie never played in the post season.   He came close in 1969 but the Cubs blew a lead to the Mets in September.    In 1974, a young Texas team battled for the AL West but lost to Oakland.  

Great pitcher and "innings eater".   Hall of Fame 1991.
