#47 - Ernie Banks

It’s a rare occasion when a ball player spends his entire career with a team, but Ernie Banks is just such a man. Nicknamed “Mr. Cub” and “Mr. Sunshine” (For his infectious positive attitude), Banks played shortstop and first base for the Chicago Cubs between 1953 and 1971.  During that time, Banks racked up 2 MVP awards, was a 14x All-Star, won a Gold Glove, and hit 512 home runs which was good enough to get him into Cooperstown in 1977.
