Ferguson Arthur Jenkins, Jr. was a dominant right-handed pitcher known for strikeouts, eleventh on the all-time leader list with 3,192. He is the only pitcher to have more than 3,000 strikeouts with less than 1,000 walks (997). While he pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox, he is best known for his tenure with the Chicago Cubs from 1966-1973. In 1982-1983, he finished his career in a return stint with the Cubs.

Although many baseball records declare that he was born in 1943, Jenkins maintains that he was born on December 13, 1942. The only Hall of Famer to be born in Canada, he hails from Chatham, Ontario and is the only child of Ferguson Jenkins, Sr. and his wife Delores. The elder Ferguson, a chef, was descended from immigrants from the Bahamas. Delores' ancestors were slaves who escaped the southern United States via the Underground Railroad. His mother was tall at five feet ten inches, and Fergie grew to be six feet five inches tall.

During his school years, his natural athletic ability began to emerge. He tried several sports and excelled at most of them. In his years at Chatham Vocational High School, Ferguson chose to compete in track, hockey, and basketball, lettering five times. His mother objected to hockey after he got fourteen stitches in his head.
