Ron Santo. Ernie Banks. They were my summer companions.
This is very sad... And also sad cause I've never heard of him before now and I used to follow baseball quite a bit up til just a few years ago. Although, he's from the National League, and that might be why I hadn't heard of him.
And he was a Cub. As a transplant from Chicago, that puts him way up there in my book. RIP.
Sad to say I never heard of him. But then again ChiTown baseball teams were never on my radar.
You're right, Nick. He was a great player and a great guy ... good on the air, as well. RIP, Ron. I think I had a Ron Santo wood bad when I was a kid.
Like Sig, I don't remember Ron Santo, which is no guarantee that I didn't know about him at the time. I still like the BrooklynDodgers, though.
