GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 2/27/15 , ;" Ernie Banks: Baseball Giant Ernie Banks was a base- ball legend back when I was growing up in the '50s and '60s. He played shortstop for the Chicago Cubs and was also a homerun slugger. He was one of the nicest, most positive baseball players of his generation which in- cluded many African-Ameri- can ballplayers who finally made it into Major League Baseball. Like many other greats, he was blackballed from baseball in the biggies due to having the wrong color. As a baby boomer, my gen- eration was a lucky one for us, it was never about color only about talent. I had many baseball heroes as a kid, but it was only years later I learned of the struggle faced by Black players in the first half-dozen years of the post- Jackie Robinson era. Many of these players, like the great Satchel Paige, could have stayed bitter. In the year I was born Satchel Paige was named A.L. Rookie of the Year as a Cleveland Indians pitcher at age 42. I can only imagine how great his career could have been had he come up 20 years earlier. It is difficult talking about Banks without talking about Larry Doby, Willie Mays, Minnie Minoso, Hank Aaron and all the others held back by blatant racism. When I was a kid when it came to shortstops ERNIE BANKS WAS NUMBER ONE.

DONNELLY, JR., Esquire, First Justice of. said Court at Cambridge, this 11 day of February, 2015. Tara E. DeCristofaru, Register of Probate Run date: 2/27/15 EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani He became a legend in Chi- cago playing all 19 of his sea- sons with the lowly Cubs. He was revered by fans as "Mr. Cub." He didn't look like a slugger with his slender frame. Standing a bit over 6-feet and weighing a mere 180 pounds, but with his pow- erful wrists he hit 512 life- time homers. He was named the league MVP in both 1958 and 1959. Banks made it to 11 All-Star games and hit 40 homers or more 5 times and was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first try in 1977. He became the first Black player on the Cubs on Sep- tember 17, 1953. Prior to that he played on the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro League. He was one of the first Black stars of the modern game. Ernie Banks was called the eternal optimist by those who really knew him. When he passed away last month at age 83, baseball lost one of its greatest players and one of the most decent men ever to play the game. Orioles Sign Up UMass Boston Prospect The Baltimore Orioles se- lected UMass Boston senior Jamill Moquete in the 32 nd round of the 2014 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft making him the second UMass Boston Bea- cons player to get drafted by a Major League team. Moquete, the 2014 Little East Conference Co-Player of the Year, was the 961 st pick overall. Said Beacons Head Coach Brendan Eygabroat, "His work was outstanding. It Jamill Moquete of UMass Boston is the reason he got drafted." The outfielder has played on the Beacons team for 3 years and. led the team offensively for 2 of those seasons, ending his college career with a .344 batting average and a slugging av- erage of .548. Said Moquete, "My dream has come true. This is a blessing, and I want to thank everyone who helped me be- come the player and person I am today." Giambi Hangs it Up After 20 Years Jason Giambi is retiring after 20 years of baseball. The 2000 AL MVP an- nounced his decision last week and ends his career as one of only 20 players in his- tory with at least 400 hom- ers, 1,400 RBIs, 1,200 runs and 1,300 walks. The 44- year-old played with the Ath- letics, Yankees, Rockies and Indians. In closing out his long career, Giambi took the time "to thank the fans for being a part of my incredible journey."
