It took awhile, but Ron Santo was finally voted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame a place that he should have been in a long time ago. The Baseball Hall Of Fame dropped the ball on this one and he has since passed and will not be able to enjoy this honor. At least his family will, but that is little consolation in my opinion.
Ron Santo played the game hard and was a great player for the Chicago Cubs. Santo was a nine-time All-Star, hit 342 home runs and won five Gold Gloves. He was a Cubs broadcaster for two decades and loved his Cubs. For Santo's family they are happy in one moment, but sad that Ron does not get to enjoy the moment. What can you expect we are talking about The Baseball Hall Of Fame and they continue to drop the ball when it comes to getting the right people into the Hall.
