Pat Hughes: Remember Ronnie with a big smile – Chicago Breaking Sports


Fans gave one last round of applause to Cubs great Ron Santo as his funeral procession circled Wrigley Field on its way from Holy Name Cathedral today.

Santo was remembered with smiles and happy memories as friends and colleagues praised his unbridled optimism in the face of health problems and the heartbreaking failures of his beloved team.

Here is how the day’s events unfolded:

Although my interest in the Cubs has waned over the years, I always thought highly of Ron Santo and the Cubs teams of my youth.

Banks, Beckert, Kessinger and Santo; that was a solid infield and one that I lived and died with as a young man growing up in the heart of Illinois.

Ron Santo, the hot corner is in better shape with you playing in that greatest of the Major leagues.
