Speaking of Canadian baseball players, former Cub pitcher Ferguson Jenkins can add one more to his list of accomplishments.
Fergie’s face will adorn a postage stamp. This will be part of an effort to commemorate Black History Month this upcoming February. Along with his portrait, there will be a backdrop of Jenkins throwing off the mound in a Cubs uniform. Jenkins was in Ottawa on Monday to help Canada Post to celebrate the event (and apparently his birthday as well).
Ferguson Jenkins is the only Canadian-born player in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
