Ron Santo Passes At 70

((HT: MyFoxChicago))

The Chicago Cubs, according to long-time play-by-play guy Pat Hughes, lost their biggest fan when Ron Santo passed this morning at the age of 70.

Friends of Santo's family said Santo died Thursday night in Arizona after lapsing into a coma the day before. He died of complications from bladder cancer.

The Wrigley Field marquee was changed to say "Ron Santo, 1940 - 2010"

Here's coverage of the passing from WFLD-TV

Their coverage also included an interview with Sports Director and FOSG Corey McPherrin...

Here's a tribute from CSN Chicago.

Here's a clip from the documentary film This Old Cub that Ron Santo' son Jeff produced back in 2004. (Thanks WGN-TV)
