Ron Santo is a Hall of Famer; wife says it is not a sad day - I mean I am still alive and Ron left me alot of money!

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Ron Santo is a Hall of Famer. His plaque is now on display in Cooperstown to prove it. “This is not a sad day,” wife Vicki Santo said as she gave the acceptance speech. “This is a great day.”

In 15 seasons, including one with the White Sox, Santo hit 342 home runs, had a batting average of .277 and won five Gold Gloves. Yet Santo appeared on the Baseball Writers’ Association of America ballot for 15 years and the closest he came to making the Hall cut was 43.1 percent, in 1998 -- far short of the necessary 75 percent.

Finally, thanks to a revamped Golden Era committee -- and a strong push from Williams, who stressed Santo’s work for juvenile diabetes research -- Santo got in last December, a year and two days after he died at 70. The Claek Sports Center was evenly divided between Cubs fans and Reds fans to honor the other 2012 inductee, shortstop Barry Larkin.

“God, how he loved the Cubs and Cubs fans “ Vicki Santo said. “He would be so grateful you came here today to share this with him.”

I almost fell off my barstool when I first read the story above Mrs. Santo's picture. Did she really say that? Guess not. Santo was a pretty brave guy who fought his diabetes and other problems. As a baseball player and even more in his retirement facing all those medical problems with such courage. He is certainly an ALL STAR in my books!

Fuck Ron Santo, he was a HUGE CRYBABY, he does not belong in the HoF, Pete Rose belongs there so much more than Santo

She looks like a zombie. Santo was nothing special but he sure was funny to hear on the radio. I wonder how much money was donated to get him in?

Oh no doubt Rose belongs in the HoF. The dirtbag commish is waiting for him to die before he gets in just to stick it to him. That does not mean Santo does not belong there. He has the numbers to get in. Only reason he was not in earlier is some of the players couldnt stand his clicking of his heals and his other antics.

For ALL of you Santo LOVERS, REMEMBER when he THREW Don Young UNDER THE BUS for dropping a fly ball in '69 AND HIS MOST OUTLANDISH REMARK "THE WORST YEAR I HAD IN BASEBALL WAS WITH THE WHITE SOX"? REALLY, THEN the estate of the HOFmer SHOULD return ALL the money he made as a player AND from those wonderful "PRO'S PIZZA".

What a joke - another undeserving Cubs player inducted into the Hall of Fame. If Santo hadn't padded his offensive stats by playing at Wrigley for nearly half of his games, nobody would have ever talked about him being in the Hall of Fame. The only reason he got in is because he announced for the Cubs, whined like a little girl each time he wasn't voted in, and people felt sorry for him when he died from diabetes.

Santo is the fourth Cubs player from their 1960s teams to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame - he joins Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, and Fergie Jenkins. If the 1960s Cubs teams really had four of baseball's all-time greats, then why did the Cubs suck during almost every season during the 1960s? They didn't win the NL pennant during the 1960s and only finished 2nd one time!

Did they put that shitty hair piece he always had on in the museum too !!!!!! Cubs suck !!!!

Nothing but a sympathy vote in. There was a reason he never got more than 43% from people who are supposed to know the game for 15 years. And then we had to listen to him cry every year and put on a sad face.

Hey, fuck you Kunt! You fucking uselss cocksucking hillbilly White Sux douche bag fan.

Padded his stats at Wrigley? You fucking twat, the fucking wind blows in 2 days for every day it blows out. It also has the lngest foul lines in MLB you cocksucker.

He also went in for his defensive abilities, something your fucking butt buddy nigger The Big Skirt could never ever do.

Go fuck yourself Kunt!
