Happy 70th Birthday!

Ronald (Ron) Edward Santo was born on February 25th, 1940. Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1959, Santo played his entire 14 year career in the City of Chicago (1960-1973 with the Cubs and 1974 with the White Sox). Across those 14 years in Chicago, Santo put together an elite resume on both sides of the baseball.

 

Of his 13 years with the Cubs, Santo was selected as an All-Star nine times. He led the league in assists for 7 straights seasons from 1962 to 1968. Santo also won five consecutive Gold Glove Awards from 1964 to 1968. He put together four seasons with a .300 batting average. He also hit at least 30 home runs in four seasons. To this day, Santo is the only third baseman to have 90 or more runs batted in (RBIs) in a season for eight consecutive seasons. Despite all of these amazing achievements, Santo has yet to be elected to Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

 

Due to a long battle with type 1 diabetes, Santo was forced to retire early at the age of 34. Years later, despite his battle with diabetes, Santo did manage to become a part his beloved Cubs organization once again. In 1990, Santo joined the broadcast team at Wrigley Field and became the color commentary for the Cubs. In 2003, Santo became the third player (now one of six) in Cubs history to have his number retired. During his number retirement ceremony, Santo declared, “This is my Hall of Fame!” To this day, Santo is still a fan favorite in Chicago and a legend of the game.
