Player Biography
Pitching in an era “when the manager gave you the ball and didn’t expect it back until the game was over,” Ferguson “Fergie” Jenkins’ name could perennially be found among the league leaders in games won, complete games and innings pitched. The Canadian right-hander showcased a variety of pitches while amassing 284 victories during a 19-year career. However, control was Jenkins’ chief asset. “My game plan is simple, I throw strikes and make ’em hit the ball. When I can do that, I’m on my way to a winning season.” And there were plenty of those for the seven-time 20-game winner.
