Durbin Honors 'Mr. Cub' Ernie Banks On The Senate Floor
U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) spoke on the Senate Floor today to honor Chicago Cubs legend and baseball Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, who passed away last Friday night at the age of 83. In 2013, Banks received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the White House, the highest honor given to civilians in the United States. Durbin recommended Banks be considered for the award for his accomplishments on and off the field.
