Another baseball season is finally upon us and in a typical year on Cubs radio broadcasts, in the booth its been Pat Hughes and Ron Santo in the booth. The cub games were so enjoyable to listen to with the back and forth banter between the two. Even if the cubs were having a bad day Pat and Ron made it interesting. In recent years, Ron's health began to start taking its toll but despite that he was in the booth cheering on his beloved cubs. There were times he could not be in the booth but found a way to be a part of the pre-game show. At the end of last season, Santo took off for the rest of the season in that final week. I didn't think much of it until we all received the sad news that Ron Santo had passed. I was totally shocked when I first heard it, couldn't believe it at first. Once it all soaked in then I started thinking about the new season of cubs baseball on the radio. I will miss Ron's getting upset when the cubs don't do something right in the field or see him cheer when the cubs score or steal a base. Ron Santo was more than a Legendary Cub third baseman of the 60's and early 70's, more than just a great analyst on cubs radio but a true fan in the booth. Santo represented all cub fans in the booth and expressed things all cub fans are feeling. Ron will be forever missed not just as a broadcaster and player but as a person. For this season, we say hello to another cub legend, Keith Moreland to the booth. Moreland knows his baseball inside and out and did a fine job in the booth in the exhibition season. Let's enjoy another fine season of cubs baseball on the radio and as Ron Santo once said" This is the year".... as a Cub fan, I surely hope so. Ron will be cheering from heaven along with Harry Caray for sure.
