More Information On Ron Santo Visitation And Funeral

Here's more information on the upcoming visitation and funeral services for Ron Santo, to be held this Thursday and Friday. The Cubs have announced that if you can't attend the service at Holy Name Cathedral, you are invited to view the funeral procession outside Wrigley Field at Noon Central time on Friday.

There will be a public visitation at Holy Name Cathedral from 4 to 11 pm CST on Thursday, December 9. Because the Cathedral must close its doors by midnight, they are asking that you be in line by 11 p.m. to ensure that you'll be allowed in. The line will begin on State Street and head north toward Chicago Avenue. You'll enter the church through the main State Street entrance and exit through the Superior Street side of the Cathedral.

Friday’s funeral service will commence at 10 a.m. and will include eulogies by Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts, WGN Radio’s Pat Hughes and MLB Commissioner Bud Selig. WGN-TV, WGN Radio and the Associated Press will serve as pool video, sound and still photographs for media outlets.

Following the services at Holy Name Cathedral on Friday, the funeral procession will embark on a route towards Wrigley Field. The procession will leave Holy Name Cathedral and drive north on State Street, east on Chicago Avenue, south on Michigan Avenue, turn around in front of Wrigley Building before pausing in front of WGN Radio (Tribune Tower), north on Michigan Avenue to inner Lake Shore Drive, west on Division Street, north on LaSalle Drive, north on Clark Street, north on Sheffield Avenue, west on Addison Street followed by a lap around Wrigley, a final visit from the Old Third Baseman to his baseball home for over 50 years.
