The Chicago Cubs and Ricketts family are recognizing Hall of Famer Ernie Banks at tonight's game against the Cincinnati Reds for his honor of receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama.

Former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Billy Williams will honor Banks on the field just before the national anthem and "Mr. Cub" himself will follow with an acknowledgement to the crowd.
