Remembering Ernie Banks

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Ernie Banks statue has been drawing a steady stream of adoring fans to Daley Plaza this morning.

Usually situated outside Wrigley Field, the statue had been removed for refurbishing. It will be on display on the plaza through Saturday to honor Banks who died last Friday at the age of 83.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a visitation will be held at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago Friday from Noon to 8 pm.  A memorial service will be held at the church at 10 am Saturday. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bank's memory to Cubs Charities.
