CHICAGO (AP) - Fans will get a chance to pay their respects to Chicago Cubs great Ernie Banks.

On Friday a visitation at the Fourth Presbyterian Church in downtown Chicago will be held between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. A memorial service is planned at the same church Saturday.

Banks died last Friday at the age of 83 after suffering a heart attack. Since Wednesday, fans have been flocking to Daley Plaza, where a statue of the Hall of Famer was placed and will remain through Saturday.

Banks is the most beloved and famous player in Cubs history. In his 19-year career with the Cubs he hit 512 home runs and was twice voted the National League’s Most Valuable Player.
