Mr. Cub has passed away at the age of 83. While Mr. Banks played before my time, he was one of my favorite players to watch highlights of. In my opinion, he was one of the best ever and would have been even more legendary had he played for a team other than the Cubs. Banks was a man who we too often see missing in today's pro-sports world... Talent coupled with class, humor, and humility.
Reading the article, I learned Bill Murray actually named one of his sons after Banks. He was also the first player from a losing team to win the MVP award.
