Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneidoy, November 3, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Cy Young honors to Fergic Jenkins' efforts pay off NEW YORK (API ceivcd 17 first place voles and a sun Jenkins of Chicago Cubs, a 20-gamc winner in each of the last five seasons, today was named tile National League's 1971 Cy Young Award winner. Jenkins, a 211-year-old right- hander from Chatham, OnL, re- total of S7 points from the 24- man committee of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Tom Seaver of New York Mels was runner-up with six first-place votes and poinls, while Al Donning of IMS Ange- les Dodgers was third with 40 points, including the remaining first place vote. Jenkins is the first Canadian a major baseball to receive award. A (i-foot-5, ae-poumlcr, Jen- kins compiled a 2-1-13 record for Award winner happy, has bargaining power CY YOUNG WINNER Ferguson Jenkins was named today as the National feague's Cy Young Award winner. Jenkins is a righthander with the Chicago Cubs. WINDSOR, Onl. (CP) Winning the Cy Young Award as the National League's out- standing pitcher is like having "a hip star up there beside my mime" for Ferguson Jen- kins. The Chatham, Out., native today became the first Cana- dian to win a major baseball award when he was named the Cy Young winner by a panel of baseball writers. Jenkins said in an interview here the award should strengthen his bid for a salary when he be- gins contract negotiations with Chicago Cubs. "It gives me all the more bargaining he said. "I can't blame the club owners for trying to keep a young player's contract down. If you pay him now, in two or three years you might have to pay him "Bob Gibson didn't make SIOO.OOO until he was in the league for 10 years or so; nei- Iher did Ted Williams or Wil- lie Mays. I've only been in the league seven years." MAKES IT FIVE Jenkins was a 20-gamc and a potent bat helped him pitch so many innings. "I have never had a sore arm. Near the end of a season your arm becomes tired and you become tired mentally bin my arm has never been sore. "I stay in a lot of games because of my bat. I won eight games last year with my own hits." Jenkins plans to spend the winter in Chatham, Out., where be used to be a first baseman, with his father, his wife Kalhy, and two baby daughters. He rents a eottage on Lake St. Clair and plans to do a great deal of hunting and fish- ing before 1972 spring training rolls around. Jenkins set his personal goals for the future high. "W a rre n Spahn won 20 games six years in a row on two occasions and had 13 20- game seasons in his career. It would be a great accomplish- ment to surpass a super ball player like Spahn."

"It means a lot to get into a World Series. Everything is centralized in a World Series and therefore there is a lot of national recognition. People put a lot of stock in World Scries performances." It is Jenkins' belief that the 1371 season was bis linest. "I had a lot more runs scored for me this season but I still could have won five or six more games with just one more run.

"For Ihe most part, football injuries have been accepted by the play- ers as an uncomfortable by- product of participation in the game."
