9 time all star, 5 gold gloves, better offensive numbers then Brooks Robinson , but not in the hall of fame. 1960-1974, only 4 players in MLB with 300 Homers, 1300 RBI, and 2000 hits. They were: Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Billy Williams, and Ron Santo. RIP .

One of the greats ... along with Ernie Banks cursed to play on one of the not so great teams!

How the hell is he not in the HOF?

Condolences to all the Chicago folks.

Diabetes sucks! Man's been sick for a long time

One of those just missed it HOF guys - if he had the same stats on a penant winner he'd have long been in the hall

As a Chicagoan there is no hall of fame if he's not in it. One of the greats. Lets see how all those other Hall of Famers mighta done playing with diabetes.

I had heard on sports talk radio in Chicago that he was a super competitive abrasive hard ass for a long time while playing and he built up a lot of animosity amongst his adversaries within baseball. Still it just ain't right.

I remember Ron Santo from the baseball cards I had as a Kid. Never saw him play, (never saw the Cubs)...But because of the numbers he put up year after year, we all knew who he was.

R.I.P. Ron and thanks for all the good times
