Farewell to a Childhood Hero

By Chaplain Mike

Ronald Edward Santo (1940-2010)
One of the greatest Chicago Cubs of all time.

The following is the theatrical trailer for the film, This Old Cub, a tribute to Santo written by his son Jeff, celebrating his determined and optimistic approach to life despite terrific obstacles.


  1. Jeff Livingston says

    Thanks Mike. As a fan of the Big Red Machine, I recall great battles between the Reds and the Cubs back in the late 60s-1970s. Santo was truly a giant, as a player and as a person.

  2. A travesty Santo is not in the Hall of Fame.

  3. I had nothing but respect for Captain Ron as a player. As a broadcaster, his passion and enthusiasm almost made me a Cubs fan. He will be missed.
