CHICAGO (AP) — The woman who was the late baseball great Ernie Banks' caretaker says she is determined to carry out his wishes despite concerns expressed by his family.
The twin sons of Ernie Banks asserted Monday that Regina Rice, acting as his agent and caretaker, coerced Banks into signing a new will giving her all his assets. Jerry and Joey Banks said their father was ill at the time Rice had him sign a new will.
In a statement, Rice says she understands the concerns of Banks' family. She says the record and those closest to Banks will "dispel any iota of concern regarding my relationship with Ernie and his trust in me to carry out his wishes."
Attorney Mark Bogen says Banks' family will contest the will.
