How in the hell can you not vote him in?!?! I'm sorry for getting so pissed but this is ridiculous! Santo a 9 time all star, great player in his era, 5 gold gloves, and a .277 lifetime avg., and the best guy, who played the game right, yet you cant vote him in?!? He is a model baseball player, he worked hard, and did it with diabetes. I know he doesn't want to use that to get in and nor should the committee take that into consideration but I take it into consideration. He he had69.5% of the votes and needed 75% which is only 4 votes shy, he lead the class in votes with 57 votes. I'm mostly frustrated with the fact he is only 4 votes short, who are these people who don't want him in the Hall? Who doesn't think he is worthy? If its stats check this out!
10654 at bats
8143 at bats
1331 RBI .
The first guy is Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson and the second guy is Ron Santo. IF your going by just stats and say he doesn't belong then your crazy. Compare HR, AVG, OBP ETC.. Plain and simple Santo deserves the Hall of Fame!
Ron Santo deserves to be in the Hall and no one is going to make me believe any different. Ron to me your a guy who played the game right and not only do you have great stats but you did things that don't show up on stat sheets. Ron Santo is a Hall of Famer to me! Whether he is inducted or not!
