At Last – Ron Santo Inducted Into Baseball Hall of Fame – Wrigley Field 12/5/11

Posted on 05 December 2011 by Lou

At last – Ron Santo has finally been elected posthumously to the Baseball Hall of Fame.  It took way to long – 32 years, but he will finally become a member of that elite class in July 2012.  Santo received 15 of 16 votes (93.8%) of the “Golden Era Committee” to get the nod.  Nominees need at least 75% of the vote (12 votes) in order to be elected.  Pitcher Jim Kaat received 12 votes; Minnie Minoso and Gil Hodges each received 9 votes.

We’ll have more on this in the coming days, but we’re so happy for Ron and his family! We miss you Ronnie!

Go Cubs Go!
