The name Ernie Banks is synonymous with Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs. Although “Mr. Cub” started his professional baseball career with the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro National League, Banks will forever be remembered for his 19 seasons on the North Side of Chicago. A two-time National League MVP, 11-time All-Star and a member of baseball’s elite 500-home run club, Ernie Banks was, and still is, a great ambassador for the game
Ernie Banks’ famous saying, “It’s a beautiful day for a ballgame. Let’s play two!” lives on despite MLB’s lack of traditional doubleheaders. Although it’s been more than 35 years since Ernie Banks’ last game, he is still known by sports fans of all ages, even ones who weren’t yet born when he played. His passion for the game and love of the Cubs is something that is rarely seen in today’s ballplayers.

**Ernie Banks Appearance**
Although Cubs fans never got to see an Ernie Banks appearance in a World Series, it wasn’t due to a lack of effort. Longtime baseball manager Jimmy Dykes pretty well summed up Banks’ importance to his team by saying “Without Ernie Banks, the Cubs would finish in Albuquerque.”
