Blast from the past: Banks hit 500th home run 50 years ago

https://www.dailyherald.com/sports/20200512/blast-from-the-past-banks-hit-500th-home-run-50-years-ago

Ernie Banks created so many fond memories and reached so many milestones during his 19-year stay with the Cubs.

In the latter category, the Hall of Famer rounded the bases 50 years ago today at Wrigley Field after hitting his 500th home run.

Lots more at link.

5. Today I would just say: Let's play at all. Great power for a switch hitter. Like Mantle.
