Leatherstocking Golf Course, The Otesaga Resort Hotel and the National Baseball Hall of Fame
Cooperstown, New York
The Business Council is proud to announce Chicago Cubs icon Ferguson “Fergie” Jenkins as this year’s featured Hall of Famer. Fergie Jenkins, who was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991, had a storied career – becoming the first Cubs pitcher and first Canadian to ever win baseball’s prestigious Cy Young award. He’s also one of only four pitchers in history to record more than 3,000 strikeouts and fewer than 1,000 walks.
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.
In addition to pitching for the reigning World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, Mr. Jenkins also played for the Phillies, Red Sox and Rangers throughout his nearly 20-year career.
