(Before It's News)


We remember that Ron Santo was born on this day in 1940.   

He began his career with the Cubs in 1960 at age 20.   From that debut to his retirement in 1974, he put together some great numbers:   .277 career batting average, 342 HR, 2,254 hits & 1,331 RBI.

From 1963 to 1970, Santo averaged 29 HR and 106 RBI.   He also led the NL in walks 4 times and won 5 Gold Gloves for his defensive work at third base.

Sadly, he died in 2010 and did not live to see his induction into the Hall of Fame in 2012.
