The Cubs' beloved #14 passed away on January 23, 2015 at the age of 83. The Chicago Cubs' first African American player was an 11-time All-Star and two-time National League Most Valuable Player. He finished with 512 home runs and had 1,636 RBIs, earning induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. In this tribute to the legendary Cub that features nearly 100 images, Triumph Books partners with the Chicago Tribune to celebrate Banks's Chicago legacy and all that he meant to baseball fans in the city.
