Santo began broadcasting Cubs games in 1990 for WGN.
I never saw Santo play as he retired before my birth. However, I always enjoyed listening to Ron on the radio as he genuinely loved the team. He shared the fan's joy and heartache through his broadcasts.
Santo lost both of his legs due to diabetes, the disease which eventually led to his death. His prosthetic leg, created to look like a bat, showed his love of the game.
