Ernie Banks began his professional baseball career with the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League. He joined the Chicago Cubs in 1953 and spent his entire 19 year Major League career with them. Banks won consecutive National League Most Valuable Player Awards as a  shortstop in 1958 and '59.

Banks was the first African-American to play for the Cubs and is one of six Cub players to have his uniform number retired.

Ernie Banks hit 40 or more home runs in a season five times and finished his career with 512 homers. Ernie was inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame in 1977 and in 1999 he was named to Baseball's All-Century team.

book cover
"Howard Kellman has spent a lifetime in baseball, and through the stories in this book he teaches us valuable lessons such as: if a girl in a bar wants you to take her to Midnight Mass - do it, never use gasoline to dry a field, and always let your wife know when a game goes extra innings. Trust me, it will pay off."
- Howie Rose, Broadcaster, New York Mets
