Top 5 Most Memorable Cubs All-Star Moments: #2 -1967: Fergie Jenkins fans six batters in Anaheim

Fergie Jenkins earned three appearances in the Midsummer Classic during his 19-year big league career. During his first appearance, Jenkins allowed one run on three hits while striking out six batters. At just 23 years old, Jenkins struck out Harmon Killebrew, Tony Conigliaro, Jim Fregosi, Rod Carew and Tony Oliva and caught Mickey Mantle looking.

The game went 15 innings, with the National League prevailing, 2-1. Tony Perez blasted a homer off Catfish Hunter. Anyway, Jenkins' appearance was sandwiched between Juan Marichal, who started the game and Bob Gibson who relieved him.

It's pretty crazy to think that a guy who won 284 games, earned a Cy Young and ran off a 10-year stretch where he averaged 20 victories annually only made three All-Star Games, but at least he made the most of that first one.
