Ernie Banks - Where Is He Now?

time foundation chicago

Ernie Banks divides his time between homes in Chicago and Los Angeles, making regular visits as well to Dallas to visit family. Besides being in great demand for personal appearances at baseball card shows and other events, he devotes his time to his company, Ernie Banks International, and Ernie Banks Live Above And Beyond Foundation, which provides scholarships and other assistance to disadvantaged youth. Reflecting on the fact that he never played in a World Series, Banks told the Chicago Sun-Times when he set up the foundation "My long-range mission is to be the first athlete to win the Nobel Prize."

I stayed with Ernie and his family in Cooperstown when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame (no,really, in their hotel room!) He doesn't know me from Adam but it was one of the most exciting adventures of my life. I found Joey and Jerry in a restaurant when they were being dissed by the waitress and like anyone should who sees discrimination in action, I intervened. That seemed to bond us. I don't request much: maybe a letter from Ernie to my mom saying "hi". She's only a year and a half younger than him and he is one of her heroes.

I was in boot camp with Ernie Banks son, he was my RCPO and I would love to catch up with him, we both had lives in Los Angeles, and it would mean the world for me to know he is alive and well..Thanks for whatever you can do, his son was a wonderful friend and I look forward to reconnecting, I am a disabled cop and want to find out how his life went after we were separated. GOD bless.

Dear Judy,



I hope that you didn't forget about your request to locate Ernie Banks (i.e., Mr. Sunshine, Mr. Cub). I am cousin to Mr. Banks, and will have you to know that not only is he alive and well, but he is very active in community and global affairs. I will be sure to pass your message on to him, and if there is a means of contact, provide that to him as well.



Respectfully,



D. Yvonne Armstrong

HI, My name is Judy Lewis. I was a friend of Ernie's in 1973 when he was coaching the winter league for the Cubs. I was a good friend of Mike Krukow's. Ernie would stop by my work place, Benihana's Restaurant on Scottsdale Road and Indian School, and discuss the problems of his boys and even would ask for advice. I just laughed. He was a true aquarian, always full of vitality and great humor. He would never say goodbye. I was never aware of his notoriety. I knew he was a great coach and past player. His person was what was important to me. I'd love to say hi and hey, it's great day to play ball! Judy Paine Lewis

HI...trying to reach Ernie. I met Ernie in 1973 when he was coaching winter ball for the Cubs in Phoenix, AZ. I worked at Benihana's and was good friends with Mike Krukow. Ernie would stop by and discuss different melodramas of his boys. He'd even ask me for advice. I just laughed. I knew quite a few of his boys. He was a true aquarian...always up and full of vitality. He never said good bye. At the time I didn't even know his history in baseball. Only that he was a great coach and been a great player. It wasn't important to me. His person was what was important to me. Judy
