Chicago Cubs Ernie Banks

Updated on January 28, 2016

The Great Ernie Banks


Talking Baseball From Behind Home-Plate:

Ernie Banks:

Ernie Banks was an amazing baseball player. He won back to back NL MVP’s in 1958 and in 1959 when he hit 47 and 45 Round Trippers. He played his entire career for the Chicago Cubs from 1953 to 1971. In 1953 he only appeared in ten games, but after that he had appeared in over 100 games from 1954 until 1969, collecting over 9000 at bats, and a career 2583 hits. In 1955 Ernie Banks hit 45 home runs, but he also knocked in 143 RBI’s. He has never come close to that feat again. Ernie Banks hit more homers than anyone in the majors between 1955 and 1960. He was aan 11-time all-star and in 1958 he had 11 triples. His 18 year career has produced 512 home-runs, 2528 hits 1638 RBI’s, but even with his speed he has only stolen 50 bases in his entire career. But he’s Ernie Banks– We forgive you.. That’s talking baseball from behind home plate with Frank F. Atanacio.


Flash Back Star Rookies– The Year 1992 Safe or Out at the Plate?

Tom Goodwin: Dodgers–Out!

Willie Banks: Twins–Out!

Ryan Klesko: Braves–Safe! ( Had a very good career )

Todd Van Poppel–Athletics–Out! ( He had superstar status–but it never appeared )

Kyle Abbott: Angels–Safe! ( He too had a good career )

      Nice to read up on Mr. Banks (Mr. Cubs!) and just imagine what he might have done playing with another team...no, let's not even imagine that one!

      Up, useful, awesome, and interesting votes Frank. Hell of a player. I hear a lot of the old analyst talk about Ernie. 143 runs batted in for a season is quite remarkable. Many players today don't get close to that. I didn't know he was in the 500 club on homers. I always enjoy the stats. Great write Frank on a great player.
