Santo Falls Short of the Hall

Ron Santo Received 57 of the 62 votes needed for induction into the Hall of Fame

According to a report on XM Radio and on the Baseball Hall of Fame website, Ron Santo received the highest amount of votes, but fell 5 votes short. This is the 3rd straight time the Veteran’s Committee has not elected a single player into the Hall. 75% of the vote is required and Santo received 69.5%.

This system has to be tweaked. Santo’s numbers speak for themselves. This is a travesty. His next chance is in 2009.

Ron Santo is a Hall of Famer….PERIOD!!!
