Ron Santo Statue Unveiled

Ron Santo’s statue has been unveiled at Wrigley Field. From the Chicago Tribune:

“He clicked his heels in joy as a player during the memorable 1969 season, moaned in misery as an announcer during the forgettable 2009 season, campaigned for a cause as a lifelong diabetic and now Ron Santo has a permanent place at his beloved Wrigley Field.

“His bronze statue — a stunning likeness of him throwing a ball to first base — was unveiled in a pregame ceremony Wednesday outside right field, just feet from that of his long-time teammate Billy Williams.”
