Baseball lost a legend last nighthttp://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/ba ... 9814.story
I do remember him from his playing days, but would rather comment on his job as radio broadcaster for the Cubs. I'm in NJ, and for a long time never listened to him once. Then mlb.com started offering audio from all games so I started checking out different home team announcers. (To me baseball is a radio sport!) At first I hated Santo. The way he reacted to the game seemed so stupid. But over time, I found myself always choosing WGN over the other audio feed, and it was all because of Santo. I loved Phil Rizzuto, so how could I not enjoy such a true fan!
I can't imagine what a loss this is for Cubbies fans who grew up with him, and I hope for his friends and family that his memory will ease the pain of his loss.
