With the passing of Santo, I began to think about how the Cubs would honor the legend. Some of the obvious ideas came to mind, statue outside the stadium , #10 patch on the uniforms, etc... While these things would be nice, I hope the Cubs come up with something different and unique to honor Santo. Santo was not only a great player, but meant so much more to the organization than his athletic abilities. He embodied what it meant to be a Cub, both on the field and off.
Here are a couple things I came up with, but I think the collective body of BCB can do a better job. Maybe the Cubs management will see this and take us up on some ideas.
- Have Pat Hughes announce opening day by himself to pay tribute to Santo...he has no replacement.
- Rename the Cubs press box the Ron Santo press box.
