Ron Santo - HOF 2012

I know I'm a little behind on this but I just heard the news ( Thanks, Brian ). One of my dad's all-time favorite players has finally been elected to the Hall of Fame. As much as I wish that Ron was around to enjoy it, I also wish my dad was here to share this too. He passed away over the summer and I'd really, really like to call him to talk about this but I can't. Instead, I'm sitting in front of his laptop and typing this post with tears in my eyes.

My dad and I were able to meet Mr. Santo quite a few times and we have several of his autographs in our collection. I think I'll save those for July. For today, let's enjoy his 1963 Topps card. Go Cubbies!

  1. I'm sorry to hear that neither Ron nor your dad is around to see him go in the HOF.
