A biography of beloved Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, Let's Play Two is a product of numerous conversations with Banks and interviews with more than 100 of his family members, teammates, friends, and associates. The book also features oral histories, court records, and thousands of other documents and sources. Together, they explain how Banks was so different from the persona he created for the public.

The book tells of Banks' early life in segregated Dallas, his years in the Negro Leagues, and his difficult life after retirement. Chicago-based writer Ron Rapoport creates compelling portraits of Buck O'Neil, Cubs owner Philip K. Wrigley, the famed Bleacher Bums, the doomed pennant race of 1969, and much more from a long-lost era.
Free with the price of admission.
