Royals honor Ernie Banks by delivering KC Monarchs hat to statue
The city of Chicago is honoring the recently deceased Ernie Banks by moving his statue into the city's Daley Plaza for the rest of the week, and the Kansas City Royals decided to stop by to pay their respects to the man known as "Mr. Cub."
The Royals dropped off a hat from Banks' Negro League team, the Kansas City Monarchs, at the statue on Thursday.
The statue generally sits outside of Wrigley Field and had been brought in for refurbishing during the offseason, but after Banks died on Friday the city decided to host the statue in a central location until the end of the month, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
