Ernie Banks has gone missing

Ernie Banks is said to be buried at Graceland Cemetery, blocks from Wrigley Field. But Graceland Cemetery denies it. Of course, he once expressed his desire to have his ashes scattered over the playing surface at Wrigley.

It's not clear that doing that would even be legal. But in any case, a dispute has erupted between Banks' estranged widow and the executor of his estate over the matter of what to with his body.

And it isn't even clear right now where his body is.

Unseemly. This great ballplayer and hero to a generation of Chicagoans deserves to be treated with greater dignity in death.
