For all the cheering Santo did which unfortunately is what many people think about when they hear his name...if you are someone who listened to Santo call a game, you knew he knew the game as well as anyone!
I'm not a Cubs fan but I always enjoyed turning over to 1350 and listening to Santo's description and passion for both the Cubs and baseball. He was a remarkable individual for what he did in baseball but more for what he did to help others outside of sport. The world needs more Ron Santos.
It's hard to find a guy more passionate about Cubs baseball than Ronny. He poured his heart and soul into the Cubs both when he was playing, and announcing games. He could have easily hung up the microphone years ago after his first amputation, but he just kept giving and giving to Cubs fans. This is a sad day for baseball fans everywhere.
Horrible way to wake up this morning! I really wish Ron could have lived through the Cubs winning a Wolrd Series. Nobody deserved to experience that more then he did. And it's a damn shame that the man wasn't inducted into the Hall during his lifetime. RIP Ronny, the 1350 airwaves just wont be the same without you.
I've spent a lot of time listening to Pat and Ron. Although far from the best color man, Ron grew on you. Not surprised but I'm shocked. It really is a shame that he never got to see a Cubs championship. There was no bigger Cub fan than Ron Santo.
