Stan Hack was one of the first great ball players to come from Sacramento. Nicknamed “Smiling Stan”, he played his entire 16 year career for the Chicago Cubs and was the National League’s top third baseman in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. He had lifetime batting average of .301 and his 1,092 walks ranked fourth in National League history when he retired and remains a franchise record today.
Stan played the game with so much passion and had such a deep devotion for the game. He will surely be missed but never forgotten as he passed away at the age of 70. Stan's banner still hangs on the concourse at the friendly confiens at Wrigley Field. He will always be remembered as one of the greatest Cubs of all time. Somehow I have the feeling he is looking down with a huge smile on his face!
