Cubs Unveil New Statue of #10 Ron Santo (Video)


The Chicago Cubs and their fans celebrated “Ron Santo Day” (it is the 10th after all) yesterday by unveiling a statue of the Cubs legend at the corner of Addison and Sheffield, only the fourth statue of its kind at Wrigley Field.

Members of the Santo family, many members of the 2011 Chicago Cubs and several of Ron’s former Cubs teammates – including Ernie Banks, Glenn Beckert, Randy Hundley, Fergie Jenkins, Milt Pappas and Billy Williams – were on hand.

In addition to the statue unveiling, “Ron Santo Day” included a special Santo family pre-game recognition, a ceremonial first pitch by Ron’s grandson, Sam, and members of the Santo family leading the signing of the Seventh Inning Stretch.
