It's times like this that I wish I were a better writer. For some reason, I find myself having a hard time expressing my feelings on the passing of Ernie Banks even though I am not old enough to have seen him play a single game. It'd be nice to be able to say something eloquent, but unfortunately for me it's just not my strong suit. For me, he's simply Mr. Cub and I don't think that there will ever be another person to wear a Cub uniform that will mean more to the Cubs than he did.

This edition of Cub Tracks is dedicated to the reactions from around the world of baseball and other areas to the life and memories of Ernie Banks.

Rest in peace, Ernie.
