Cubs Legend Ron Santo Passes Away At Age 70

Cubs legend Ron Santo has passed away. Santo went into a coma on Wednesday and passed away early this morning from complications from bladder cancer. Santo battled diabetes throughout his life.

Santo made his love for the Chicago Cubs well known through his broadcasting. He was without question the biggest Cubs fan. He embodied every fan through the highs and the lows. He was a nine-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glover in 14 seasons for the Chicago Cubs.
