Fergie Jenkins goes postal in homeland of Canada

Fergie Jenkins turned 68 on Monday and he probably couldn't have received a cooler present than what he received from the Canadian government. The Hall of Fame pitcher - Canada's only entry in Cooperstown - will appear on his own postage stamp in his home country when Black History Month kicks off in February.

The stamp features two images - one of Jenkins pitching in a Chicago Cubs uniform and one with a more traditional portrait pose.
