Baseball Legend Ernie Banks: Segregation and Baseball***messymandella*** ‘

“Sometimes when I’d hit a home run into the bleachers, I’d imagine the ball being caught by a kid and making his day. Then I’d think, ‘Someday, I might have to ask that kid for a job.’ I can’t imagine any of today’s players needing to ask anybody for a job after baseball.”– Ernie Banks

“You must try to generate happiness within yourself. If you aren’t happy in one place, chances are you won’t be happy anyplace.”-Ernie Banks

 

“Loyalty and friendship, which is to me the same, created all the wealth that I’ve ever thought I’d have.”-Ernie Banks
