Baseball Hall of Famer to Host Pathfinder Village Golf Tournament
Baseball Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins, who posted some pretty significant numbers over his 19-year major league baseball career, will return to Cooperstown on September 15 to host a fundraiser for Pathfinder Village as well as the Baseball Hall of Fame educational Programs.
Jenkins will be here on that day to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Jenkins will serve as the celebrity host for the Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame Golf Invitational on Sept. 15 at the Leatherstocking Golf Course in Cooperstown. As the master of ceremonies, Jenkins – a 1991 Hall of Fame inductee who won 284 games and the 1971 National League Cy Young Award over a 19-year big league career with the Phillies, Cubs, Rangers, and Red Sox – will finish the 18th hole with each participant at the Wednesday, Sept. 15, event and serve as the speaker at that evening’s fundraiser dinner.
Jenkins will also be in Cooperstown to attend this year's induction ceremony on September 8. This is the second time Jenkins has been called upon to be the Master of Ceremonies for this charitable event.
The Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame Golf Invitational will begin with a 12 p.m. shotgun start and features a chance to win team prizes worth more than $6,500, with amateur foursomes playing a two-best ball round on one of the Northeast's most storied courses.

Proceeds from this event benefit Pathfinder Village located in nearby Edmeston, a residential community dedicated to children and adults with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. Golf events have been the major source of scholarship funds for Pathfinder residents and students since 1982 and directly help the Village’s 90-plus residents and students. More than $2.7 million has been raised for Pathfinder Village through the years.
