Ferguson Jenkins Heritage Award

Over the long history of sport in Ontario, there have been many one-time events – one game, one series, one memorable day or moment - that will be remembered and cherished, not only by sports fans, by the entire country as well.

The Ferguson Jenkins Heritage Award was introduced in 2011 to commemorate those one-of-a-kind events or special moments in time that so embellish the long history of sports in Ontario. There were some serious options for that first selection. In the end, a satisfying nod to Terry Fox, who, back in 1980, just happened to be passing through these parts on his heart-breaking/heart-lifting Marathon of Hope.
