Few memories are as distinct in my mind as the '69 Cubs. A good season with a heartbreaking finish.

Part of that '69 team was Ron Santo, third base.

He played that position well, tenacious defense and hit with power. I can remember him running down the third base line after a win and jumping, clicking his heels.

He later became part of the WGN radio broadcast team.

As long as I have known him, either as a player or a broadcaster, I cannot recall him ever having a bad thing to say about anyone.

Great guy.
