6th Annual Don Meyer Evening of Excellence on April 19
Baseball Hall of Famer Ernie Banks will headline the 6th Annual Don Meyer Evening of Excellence on April 19 at 5:30 p.m. at Allen Arena.
Ernie Banks artworkKnown as “Mr. Cub” to his adoring fans, Banks was a 14-time Major League All-Star with the Chicago Cubs from 1953-1971. He won back-to-back National League Most Valuable Player Awards in 1958 and 1959.
A Cub for all 19 of his seasons in Major League Baseball, he was the first black player to play for the Cubs in 1953 and was the first Cubbie to have his number retired (14) in 1982. Banks was also honored just last fall as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.
“The Don Meyer Evening of Excellence has had great guests over the years and we are thrilled to add Ernie Banks’ name to the Lipscomb lineup card,” said Lipscomb athletics director Philip Hutcheson. “Ernie Banks is one of those ‘Mount Rushmore’ kind of figures when it comes to the world of baseball's greatest ambassadors.
“Not only was he a Hall of Fame player on the field, but the joy that he brought to the game, the way he connected with his community and the work he did to promote what's good about sports would have gotten him in Cooperstown even if he never played an inning.”
The Don Meyer Evening of Excellence is an annual athletic fundraising event that began in 2009 and is named after long-time Lipscomb men’s basketball coach Don Meyer, who retired as the winningest collegiate men’s basketball coach in the history of the sport. Meyer was awarded the “Jimmy V Award for Perseverance” from ESPN at the ESPY Awards in July 2009 following a life-changing car accident and cancer diagnosis.
