Ron Santo Joins the Elite

Selected to Cubs Hall of Fame

The Chicago Cubs Hall of Fame Committee is proud to announce that Ron Santo has been inducted into the fans Hall of Fame.  In a press release of 3/1/2008, the committee reported that Mr. Santo was selected on 99.7% of the ballots.  Mr. Santo played for the Cubs from 1960 - 1973.  Among his many accomplishments, he was a 9- time NL all-star and 5- time Gold Glove winner.  Click here for more information about Mr. Santo's career. 
Memorable Moment:  9/9/1969.  A black cat crosses Mr. Santo's path during a critical game against the New York Mets.  That moment became an omen for the '69 Cubs, as their pennant hopes faded in the waning days of that fabled season.  The "curse of the black cat" joins other legendary Cubs curses that haunt baseball's most lovable team.

Fans React to Santo Snub

End the Committee?
