Statement from Governor Pat Quinn on Passing of Cubs Legend Ron Santo

CHICAGO – December 3, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement regarding the passing of Chicago Cubs legend Ron Santo.

“Anyone fortunate enough to meet Ron Santo met a man who cared about everything important in life,” said Governor Quinn. “Ron Santo cared deeply about his family, the Chicago Cubs and their fans throughout the world. Not only did he play major league baseball while suffering from diabetes, he also dedicated his life to finding a cure for the disease. Ron Santo was more than a great baseball player and announcer - he was a great person and all of Illinois mourns his passing.”
