1972 HEADLINE: Fergie Jenkins Captures 20th Win In Sixth Consecutive Season
On this day in 1972, Fergie Jenkins recorded his 20th win of the baseball season. This victory gave Fergie 20 wins, or more, in 6 consecutive seasons and solidified him as one of the most dominant and consistent pitchers of his era.
Here is a quick look at Fergie’s amazing 6-year run:
Not a bad run at all!!!
I was trying to find out how many 1-run games Fergie lost during that time. I know that I have heard the number before, but I don’t want to mis-quote it. I have searched around a bit but have not come up with an easy way to find that number. If I recall correctly, it was somewhere in the neighborhood if 15 or so…
Happy Anniversary to my favorite pitcher of all-time, Mr. Ferguson Arthur Jenkins!!!
