One of our most celebrated baseball players, Fergie Jenkins was a major-league pitcher with the Texas Rangers and the Chicago Cubs during the 1970s and 1980s. A member of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, he was the first Canadian to win the Cy Young Award for pitching and to be inducted into the United Statesí National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. As chair of the St. Catharines-based Fergie Jenkins Foundation, he has raised funds and awareness for the Canadian Special Olympics, Camp Maple Leaf, and West Niagara Second Stage Housing. He has also been an active supporter of amateur sport as a guest instructor at baseball clinics for youth.
