Cubs to honor Santo with statue

The Chicago Cubs have announced that the team will honor legendary Cubs 3rd baseman and broadcaster Ron Santo with a statue outside Wrigley Field.

Santo, who died in December, was a terrific, and in my opinion, Hall of Fame 3rd baseman for the Cubs in the 1960's and '70's.

Santo loved the Cubs, the fans, and the city of Chicago, and that love poured out into the radio on every Cubs broadcast.

The club plans on unveiling the statue of Santo before their game with the Washington Nationals on August 8th.
