Mr. Cubs’ Last Stand

On February 16, 1986, the Cubs and Mets revived the 1969 season to play an exhibition series in Arizona.

Ernie Banks was 54. This video is probably Banks’ last hit and last putout in any game. It’s an excellent example of the kind of video we have produced over the years. Shot on the field with Ernie on a radio mic, it’s a contrast to what’s been seen on “regular” TV. Enjoy.

Check out more on Ernie and the Cubs at with two videos about the Cub lineups in 1970 and 1975.
