Ferguson Jenkins helps Habitat for Humanity benefit from home runs

The 2017 Fourth Annual Builder Baseball charity softball tournament was a tremendous success, raising $42,000 (up from $38,000 in 2016) for Habitat for Humanity GTA and a four-year total of $151,000.

This year’s event featured a special guest appearance by Baseball Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins, 74, the only Canadian-born major leaguer elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Born in Chatham, Jenkins won the Cy Young Award in 1971 while pitching for the Chicago Cubs. He also played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox during his illustrious career, which spanned from 1956 to 1983. Jenkins also played for the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team in the off-season from 1967 to 1969.

In 1991, Jenkins became the first Canadian to be inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1974, Jenkins, who was then playing with the Rangers, became the first baseball player to win the Lou Marsh Trophy, an award given to Canada’s top athlete of the year.

A total of more than 400 players on 24 teams took to the diamonds at Richmond Green in Richmond Hill for the fourth annual event, followed by dinner, networking and a cheque presentation to Habitat For Humanity.

The competition was fierce, but MNP prevailed and took home the championship trophy after beating the team from the Globe and Mail.

The event was organized in partnership with the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and HOMES Publishing Group. Special kudos to organizing committee members Michael Rosset, Josh Rosset and Frances Mangos of HOMES Publishing Group, Tiffany Kohl of BILD and Michelle Vestergaard of Enbridge for putting together the tournament. Their hard work paid off in a big way, with the real winners being BILD’s Habitat partner family.

Gold sponsors were HPG, BILD, Enbridge Gas and the Toronto Star.
