    Re: Ron Santo elected to HOF

    I guess he must have hit a few dingers and made some spectacular plays up by the Pearly Gates. Only way he could have uped his stats.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I echo the previous sentiments, about time, but should have happened long before.

    Re: Ron Santo elected to HOF

    He deserved to get in a long time ago. It's hard to feel happy about this considering they waited until after he could no longer enjoy it to finally put him in.

    They robbed us of what was sure to be one hell of a HOF speech.

    Ron Santo remains my all time #1 sporting figure ever. Congrats Ron! Enjoy this upstairs!

    Lot of guys didn't want Ron in and just simply refused to allow him in while he was still living.

    Re: Ron Santo elected to HOF

    All kinds of "class" shown by the "holier than thou" group that guards the door to the HOF.

    I agree 110% with them keeping people out like some of the more recent pill poppers etc, but Ron Santo? The man was a national treasure.

    I litterally shed a tear when I heard of his passing. Listening to the Cubs will never be the same again.

    Bout freaking time. Never got to see him play but from what I've heard, he was definitely deserving. Going to miss hearing his voice during cubs radio broadcasts.
