Induct Ron Santo into the Baseball Hall of Fame

47 Signatures Goal: 100

The most popular Chicago Cubs radio analyst is considered the heart and soul of the Cubs organization, having survived diabetes, amputations of both legs, heart problems and, of course, the 1969 team that suffered a late-season collapse and watched the New York Mets race past them to win the division and ultimately the World Series. Santo was a nine-time National League All-Star at third base for the Cubs and finished his career with 342 home runs and 1,331 RBIs. Though he is considered one of the all-time greatest players at his position, Santo's lifelong goal of gaining entrance into the Baseball Hall of Fame has been consistently thwarted. Santo's devotion to all things Cubs and his close encounters with the Hall of Fame have only served to make him more beloved by Cubs Nation. A 2003 documentary on Santo's life, "This Old Cub," is a fitting tribute to his life and career, revealing his daily struggles to live a normal life despite his physical limitations, while showing his deep love for the Cubs and the city of Chicago, he calls home.
