CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Cubs plan to erect a statue at Wrigley Field to honor Hall of Famer Ernie Banks.
Banks spent all of his 19-year career with Chicago and became know as Mr. Cub. He owns franchise records with 2,528 games played and 1,009 extra-base hits. He was a 14-time All-Star who won the NL MVP Awards in 1958 and 1959. He was voted into the Hall of Fame in 1977.
Banks batted .274 with 512 homers and 1,636 RBIs for the Cubs, and hit 47 homers in 1958. His No. 14 was retired in 1982.
The statue is slated to be erected by opening day of next season.
