Our beloved Ernie Banks has passed away this evening at the age of 83.
Ernie Banks became a Cub on September 14, 1953 and played in this first game days later at the age of 22. He played every professional game for the Chicago Cubs. Over nineteen years he was a National League All-Star in 11 of those seasons. In 1977 Ernie Banks was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
We’ll miss you Mr. Cub.
