It is with deep sadness that we report the death of Chicago Cub great Ron Santo. The 70-year-old former player and broadcaster died of cancer yesterday in Arizona. For 14 years Santo manned the hot corner, and if it wasn’t for Erin Banks, might be regarded as Mr. Cub. A 5-time Golden Glove winner, Santo hit 342 homeruns with 1,331 RBI in his career and was chosen for the All-Star team no fewer than 9 times. He was a great ball player and an even bigger ambassador for the great game of baseball. He will be missed.
