>>Cubs Unveil Santo Statue Outside Of Wrigley

(Chicago, IL)  --  Ron Santo will forever be immortalized outside of Wrigley Field.  The team unveiled a statue of the former Cubs third baseman and broadcaster on the corner of Addison and Sheffield streets before the team's game against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday evening.  Santo passed away on December 3rd at the age of 70 after a battle with bladder cancer.  Santo, who was diagnosed with Type-One diabetes when he was 18, signed with the Cubs in 1959 when he was just 19-years-old.  He was named to the All-Star team nine times and won five Gold Gloves over 14 seasons on the North Side.  He joined the broadcast booth in 1990 as the Cubs color commentator for WGN radio.
