At Bosse Field on Saturday for The Greatest Save Hall of Fame Legends Game, Ferguson Jenkins reminisced about his 18-year major league baseball career.
Wearing his Chicago Cubs’ uniform, Jenkins was unable to play because he underwent a knee replacement nine weeks ago.
He played for his share of Napoleonic major league managers.
“I played for Gene Mauch at Philadelphia and they called him the ‘Little General,’ ” Jenkins said. “I played for Leo Durocher (with the Cubs) and Billy Martin (with the Texas Rangers).”
But he didn’t have a problem with any of them.
“They all told me to go out and pitch and win,” Jenkins said. “They understood that winning was what it was all about.”
