C 301 - FERGIE JENKINS SIGNED BASEBALL

Fergie Jenkins brilliantly signed the sweet spot of this baseball in blue ballpoint with the inscription "HOF '91". "Fergie" Jenkins is a Canadian and former professional baseball pitcher and coach, who played in Major League Baseball for the Philadelphia PHILLIES, Chicago CUBS, Texas RANGERS, and Boston RED SOX (1965-1983). He played the majority of his career for the Cubs. He was a National League and Cubs All-Star for three seasons, and in 1971, he was the first Canadian and Cubs pitcher to win a Cy Young Award. He was a 20-game winner for seven seasons, including six consecutive seasons for the Cubs. Jenkins also played basketball in the off-season for the Harlem Globetrotters from 1967 to 1969, and pitched two seasons in Canada for the minor league London Majors following his major league career. In 1991, Jenkins became the first Canadian to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Autographed Jenkins Baseball was purchased from the Fergie Jenkins Foundation, established in 1997. The foundation has donated $4 million to charities across North America. Fundraisers include autograph signings at five different stadiums during MLB Cactus League Spring Training in March, autograph signings at Hall of Fame Induction weekend in July, among others.
