“Ferguson Jenkins has shattered all recent pitching records to become the most consistent winner in baseball. The 1971 Cy Young award winner, with six consecutive twenty-game seasons behind him, Fergie now finds his equals only among the near-legendary pitchers of the past. [...] In his autobiography, Ferguson Jenkins recounts the story of is life, and in the process he reveals the tension of that special life. Here are memories of a childhood in Canada and an education in a string of minor league clubs. Fergie tells about his early training with his father, his encounter with Jim Crow, his relationship with Leo Durocher, and his life with the Chicago Cubs.” - from the dj.
