Former Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers is recognized before the Arizona Diamondbacks faced the Chicago Cubs in a baseball game at Wrigley Field on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, in Chicago. Exactly 100 years after the Chicago Federals beat the Kansas City Packers in the first game at the famed ballpark, Wrigley was the scene of a joyous birthday bash on Wednesday afternoon.

Relatives of Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers say the Chicago Bears legend has been diagnosed with dementia. ”Like the doctor at the Mayo Clinic said, ‘Yes, a part of this has to be on football,”’ Ardie Sayers said at their home in Wakarusa, Indiana. Ardie Sayers and the rest of the family had made no secret of his condition, but hadn’t shared it publicly.
