runs baseball home player

1931-

American baseball player

Hall of Famer Ernie Banks was the greatest and most popular player in the history of the Chicago Cubs, a man so closely associated with the franchise both during and after his playing days that he was known as Mr. Cub. Over the course of 19 seasons, he played 2528 games in which he got 2583 hits, 512 home runs, and 1636 runs batted in. He turned in such an awesome performance in 1958 (.313, 47 home runs, and 129 RBI) and 1959 (.304, 45 home runs, and 143 RBI) that he was named the National League's Most Valuable Player both years. Banks was the shining star of a team that was mediocre for most of his career, and his one great regret was that he never played in the World Series. Nonetheless losing never dampened his optimism which was so legendary that when he was elected to Baseball's Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post called

Ernie Banks

him "the only man in baseball history better known for his good spirits than for his achievements."

Dear Mr. Banks,



I have harbored anger along time and I need to get it off my chest.



In 1975, when a small boy I sent you a 1957 and 1958 Topps baseball card in excellent condition to autograph(and including a self-addressed stamp envelope). I did not hear back from you. About six months later, I saw an article about you and a picture of you holding about 15 baseball cards in the air including the 1957 and 1958 Topps cards. How could this be? Mr. Cub and a player with a great public persona taking a little kids cards. Perhaps it was a clerical error. At any rate, I would very much like to clear my mind and have very good memories of you. Anything you could do to help the inner child of my past be happy in the present would be very much appreciated.
