Cubs honor Maddux, Jenkins

Before Sunday’s series finale between the Marlins and Cubs at Wrigley Field, a couple of the greatest right-handed pitchers ever were honored.

The Cubs did a joint retirement of the No. 31, worn by Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins and future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux.

During the ceremony, from the Marlins dugout, the entire team paid close attention as both pitching greats recognized.

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez, formerly a Braves coach when Maddux was in Atlanta, tipped his cap to the right-hander who retired with 355 wins.

In his storied career, Maddux made 42 starts against the Marlins. His record was 19-15 with a 2.92 ERA.
