Cubs Hall of Fame Pitcher Fergie Jenkins
February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Barrington’s White House is pleased to feature a presentation by legendary Chicago Cubs pitcher and Cy Young Award winner Fergie Jenkins. This Canadian-born baseball player spent the majority of his career playing for the Cubs in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, where he was a National League and Cubs All-Star. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY in 1991.
According to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, “Fergie’s best single-game performance came in the 1967 All-Star Game, when he struck out six of the top sluggers in the American League: Harmon Killebrew, Tony Conigliaro, Mickey Mantle, Jim Fregosi, Rod Carew and Tony Oliva. 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 win the Cy Young.
