Ron Santo is finally in the Hall of Fame. I would have been absolutely elated if this had happened a few years ago. Today it feels bittersweet. Ron so much wanted to be included with his teammates Ernie, Billy and Fergie. You know he could just taste it. As it is we can be happy for his family and friends and for ourselves and hope that there's a heaven where he's celebrating with his Mom Vivian , Step-Dad John and legions of fans .
When his number was retired Santo said, "This is my Hall of Fame".
Since our recent move I've had this flag packed. Made out of nylon, it's 24" x "36 and the signature is about 8" long. I can't think of a better time to pull it out and find it a new place of honor.
