Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport Index of Women Career Batting Record Banks was spotted by major league scouts while playing for the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro American League in 1950. After spending two years in the Army, the Monarchs sold his contract to the Chicago Cubs for $10,000 and he joined the team at the end of the 1953 season without ever playing in the minor leagues. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Banks set a record by playing in 424 consecutive games from the start of his career with the Cubs. After batting .275 with 19 home runs in 1954, his first full season, he hit 44 home runs in 1955, a record for shortstops. He broke that with a league-leading 47 home runs in 1958, when he also led the league with 129 RBI and a .614 slugging percentage. Banks was named the NL's most valuable player in 1958 and in 1959, when he batted .304 with 45 home runs and 143 RBI. He also excelled at shortstop, leading the league in fielding percentage three times in eight seasons, including a record .985 in 1959. He led the league in home runs for the second time with 41 in 1960. The following season, the Cubs moved Banks to left field and then to first base, where he spent the rest of his career. After initial problems making the transition, he became a good fielder at that position.

Extractions: Banks, 1959 UPI/Corbis-Bettmann byname of ERNEST BANKS (b. Jan. 31, 1931, Dallas, Texas, U.S.), American professional baseball player, regarded as one of the finest power hitters in the history of the game. Banks starred for the Chicago Cubs from 1953 to 1971. An 11-time All-Star, Banks was named the National League's (NL) Most Valuable Player for two consecutive seasons (1958-59). He hit more than 40 home runs in five different seasons, leading the NL in that category in 1958 and 1960. He also led the league in 1958-59 in runs batted in. Banks excelled in football, basketball, track and field, and baseball at his Dallas high school. At age 17 he joined a barnstorming Negro league team at a salary rate of $15 per game. In 1950 legendary Negro league star Cool Papa Bell signed him to the Kansas City Monarchs. Soon after, Banks spent two years in the U.S. Army, after which he returned to the Monarchs. His stay there was short-lived, however, as the major leagues, recently integrated, were eager to take advantage of the wealth of talent in the Negro leagues. Signed by the Chicago Cubs in 1953, Banks soon established himself as one of the league's leading power hitters. In addition to his potent bat, he proved to be a skilled defensive player, setting a single-season mark for fielding percentage for a shortstop in 1959. After injuries limited his mobility, Banks moved to first base in 1962.

Extractions: By Michael Craig Sep. 25, 2000 You have to know two things about Ernie Banks: He never stops moving, and he never stops talking. Half a year from being a septuagenarian, Banks repeatedly postponed the interview to exercise, play golf and meet Nelson Mandela. I was going to question that last excuse, until I remembered that Banks introduced Hillary Clinton at the 1996 Democratic National Convention. Banks has come a long way from Dallas, where his parents' grocery shopping would consist of buying a month's worth of rice and beans. Between Mandela and Hillary Clinton, and rounds of golf with Bill Gates and Warren Buffett Ernie is a gold glove name-dropper, but he's earned the right Banks established himself as a part of baseball history. In 19 years with the Chicago Cubs,
