Ernie Banks during warm-up.
Ernie Banks, known as 'Mr. Cub' and 'Mr. Sunshine', was the first player to have his number retired by the Cubs (#14). Banks was not initially interested in baseball, and even had a brief stint with the Harlem Globetrotters. He would go on to become one of Chicago's most adored players, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977.
