HOF pitching legend Fergie Jenkins signs autographs for a good cause

PRINCETON, IN (WFIE) -

Hall of Fame pitching legend Fergie Jenkins signed autographs in the Tri-State at a benefit for a boy who's been really sick.

7-year-old Andrew Satterfield has had a number of heart-related health problems and has had 14 surgeries.

Jenkins signed baseballs, gloves and other memorabilia at Princeton's Oasis Assembly of God Church Thursday night.

Each autograph cost $20 to $25 depending on the item signed.

Organizers also auctioned off donated gifts, with all proceeds going to the Satterfields for Andrew's medical costs.

"To see youngsters, that really don't have a handicap, it's just unfortunate they're born with a deficiency, and a lot of times it's heartwarming to see them be vibrant especially and lively," said Jenkins.

Charitable work is a job for the 72-year-old Jenkins nowadays. He has a foundation that supports some 400 charities.
