Hall of Famer Search
This Day in Baseball History
On April 21, 1966, the Chicago Cubs make one of the best trades in franchise history, acquiring future Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins from the Philadelphia Phillies in a five-player deal. The Cubs surrender pitchers Bob Buhl and Larry Jackson for Jenkins, outfielder Adolpho Phillips, and first baseman John Herrnstein. Jenkins, who had made his major league debut in 1965, will win 20 games for the Cubs in 1967.
