The family of late American baseball icon Ernie Banks said they will contest a signed will that gives control of his entire assets to his caretaker, Regina Rice, CNN reported on February 17.

Banks’ family said Rice manipulated the baseball legend to sign a power of attorney, a health care derivative, and a will that grants Rice total control of his assets. On the other hand, a statement issued by Rice said the renowned baseball player made her promise to carry out all his wishes, which she said she is determined to do.

Ernie Banks died due to a heart attack at age 83. Doctors said dementia played a major role in his death.
