"Sonnet For Santo"
by Jeff Mills

Yes, Ron, you made it to the Hall of Fame!
It was long overdue you got that call.
You were one of the best to play this game,
Catching, throwing, hitting one o'er the wall.
Shame on those who kept you out in the past,
And punishing you for clicking your heels.
We hoped and prayed this day would come at last,
I can only wonder how proud you feel.
The day that it happened was bittersweet,
Filled with many tributes to number ten.
You made it, Ron, your journey's now complete,
Now in the same room with the best of men.
The writers responded to our queries;
Next up is the Cubs in the World Series!
