Ricketts Family Lays Out Plans For Cubs During Annual Convention
Published January 17, 2011
HONORING A LEGEND: The Cubs Saturday announced that the organization will honor late 3B and radio analyst Ron Santo with a statue of his likeness, only the fourth of its kind at Wrigley Field, and will remember him with a patch to be worn by players and coaches throughout the '11 season. The statue will be unveiled at a to-be-determined Wrigley Field location on Ron Santo Day, which will take place Aug. 10 in conjunction with the Nationals-Cubs game. The patch will debut during Spring Training (Cubs). In Illinois, Bruce Miles noted Tom Ricketts' announcement of both tributes was "met with great applause" at the convention (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 1/16).
