For A Pitcher, Fergie Jenkins Was One Heck Of A Hitter!!!

The numbers don’t lie, Fergie Jenkins was a very good hitter!!

Before Fergie made the commitment to pitching during his youth, he was an outstanding hitter.  And since he played in the National League, he got to get his hacks in every few days.

Although his career batting average is just .165, that is much higher than what the other guys in the NL were hitting at the time.  And even in today’s game, hitting .165 would be very competitive for the top spot in baseball.

Along with his .165 average, Fergie amassed 148 career hits, including 27 doubles, 6 triples, and 13 home runs.  He helped his cause quite a bit too as he scored 54 runs and collected 85 RBI.

Atta boy Fergie!!!
