Cubs

Ernie Banks did it his way. That usually implies a bully with a big ego, a loner making enemies while getting ahead. But for Mr. Cub, this always meant killing them with kindness.
Times and locations have been announced for memorial services honoring Cubs legend Ernie Banks, who passed away on Friday at the age of 83.
The Cubs and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office began to unveil plans for an Ernie Banks tribute on Sunday. The city will celebrate Banks’ extraordinary life with a public memorial at Daley Plaza.
