1/27 Happy birthday, Ernie

Mr. Cub will celebrate his 80th birthday Saturday. Ernie Banks will be toasted at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse restaurant in downtown Chicago. Before the event begins, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will read a declaration proclaiming Jan. 29 as “Ernie Banks Day” in the state. Cubs owners Laura and Todd Ricketts will give tributes to Banks along with Dutchie Caray. Banks’ actual birthday is Jan. 31, 1931.
