A word about Ron Santo (1940-2010)


Ron Santo died in Chicago in 2010.    Sadly, he was not around to enjoy that Cubs' win the 2016 World Series.

As a teen, I remember Ron Santo playing third for the Cubs.  He was a great defensive player (5 Gold Gloves) and put up some good numbers: a .277 average plus 342 HRs & 1,331 RBIs.

Remember that he hit 342 HRs when only a handful of hitters had hit 500 HRs!

RIP Ron Santo and thanks for all of those wonderful seasons with the Cubs!

It's a shame that he never got to see his induction into The Hall of Fame!    He was finally selected in 2012!
