Ernie Banks Says: 'Let's Drink Two!"

    No man played baseball with more joy than Ernie Banks, who famously was quoted, “Let’s play two!”

     Now, the Chicago sports legend has launched his own wine label, along with two other members of the 500 home run club, Mike Schmidt and Eddie Murray.

     Ernie Banks 512 Chardonnay, Mike Schmidt 548 Zinfandel and Eddie Murray 504 Cabernet Sauvignon are produced by Eos Estate Winery in Paso Robles, Calif., and all proceeds from the sale of the wines benefit the players’ favorite charities.

     In Banks’ case, that would be his Live Above & Beyond Foundation, which works to eliminate prejudice, relieve discrimination among various age groups and races, and enhance neighborhoods.
