CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs say a public visitation and memorial service for Hall of Fame slugger Ernie Banks will be held Friday and Saturday in the city.

The visitation is scheduled for noon to 8 p.m. on Friday, with the memorial service at 10 a.m. Saturday at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church. Limited public seating will be available.

Banks died Friday at 83 after a heart attack, according to an attorney representing his family. Known as “Mr. Cub,” Banks is remembered as much for his boundless enthusiasm despite playing on mostly losing teams as his 512 home runs and two MVP awards.
