Ernie Banks # 14
Cubs’ great, Ernie Banks is seen celebrating his election into the Baseball Hall of Fame class of 1977 in front of Wrigley Field. Banks coined the phrase, “Let's play two,” expressing his wish to play a double-header every day out of his pure love for the game. On August 22, 1982, Ernie’s #14 became the first retired number in franchise history. To this day, Ernie Banks remains the most beloved Cub of all time.
