Ron Santo was one of the greatest Cubs of all time. Despite a complete lack of respect from those that decide members of the baseball hall of Fame, Ron Santo was one of the greatest 3rd basemen of all time. Third Basemen generally are unrecognized for greatness because they have lesser offensive numbers ignoring the fact that their defense is essential to any team's success.

In addition to Ron's amazing career as a player, he contributed to an impressive number of years as a broadcaster, despite untold numbers of health problems. He sacrificed much of his life to be a Cub, and to be a Cub broadcaster.

Heel clicks for you, Ron. There is no greater Cub.

Indeed, and a classy guy, as well.
