Cubs honor Ernie Banks in first spring training game
The Chicago Cubs are honoring Cubs icon Ernie Banks in the team's first spring training game since his death last month, with special hats and outfield design both featuring his No. 14.
Manager Joe Maddon also included a nod to Banks on his spring training lineup cards with an inspirational quote from the former shortstop.
The quote reads, "You must try and generate happiness within yourself. If you aren't happy in one place, chances are you wont be happy anyplace."
Maddon often includes quotes on his lineup cards and last year used the space as a tribute to Robin Williams after the comedian's death.
