Yes, this probably should be a FanShot.
So what? Ernie Banks is 83 today.
I remember going to games in the 60's and early 70's and always looked forward to his upcoming at-bats. Had the good fortune to see a number of his homers, of course, and something in his enjoyment of playing the game made them seem somehow more "home-run-y" than some others.
He'd already moved over to first before I started going to games regularly, so I never got to appreciate his shortstop excellence. I wish I had the chance.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Ernie!
