Happy Birthday, Coach!

Ron Santo will always be my favorite player.  He died just over eight years ago and yesterday would have been his 79th birthday.  One of the saddest things was that he didn't live to enjoy his enshrinement into the Baseball Hall of Fame.  I still find it a bittersweet honor.
This image (not an exact replica) is a little weird.

Do you ever find youself appreciating the packaging as much as the actual collectible.  
This is my all-time favorite  image of Ron.  I have a framed colorized copy hanging on a wall in my house.

Happy Birthday, Ronnie!


  1. Happy Birthday Ron, and...awesome to hear from you Hackenbush!

  2. Yes, bummer about his posthumous election to the HOF... I also wish he would have been around long enough to see the WS in 2016. He might have been the biggest Cub fan to ever broadcast a game.

  3. Very cool stadium giveaway... especially for a big time Santo fan. Happy birthday Mr. Santo!
