And another of the "greatest" goes the way of all flesh Sad What a super guy and greater human being. I don't believe anything negative was ever written about him. Thanks for all the memories, Mr. Cub!! FTRPLT

Saw this on another forum:
First man to win MVP playing for a last place team (1958). And he did it again the next season.

I had the opportunity to wait on Mr. Banks at my restaurant on multiple occasions. He is the only person in the world I wouldn't tell that I am a Cardinals Fan. Heroes fade away, but Legends never die.
