Chicagoans pay tribute to Ernie Banks

A public visitation for Ernie Banks will be held Friday at Fourth Presbyterian Church downtown. Fans, ballplayers, family and friends will gather to pay their respect to “Mr. Cub”...”Mr. Let’s Play Two”…“Mr. Sunshine.” Banks broke records and barriers during his 19 years with the Chicago Cubs. But as WBEZ’s Katie O’Brien learned, he never broke character. (Photo:Flickr/Colin_Eric)
