6/23 Cubs to honor Santo
On Monday, the Cubs will recognize former player and current broadcaster Ron Santo in honor of his 50 years of service to Major League Baseball. Santo made his MLB debut June 26, 1960, with the Cubs and played 14 seasons as the team’s third baseman. On Monday, the Cubs will have a special pregame ceremony before their game against the Pirates.
Flags honoring his 50 years in baseball will fly from Wrigley Field’s roof starting Monday. To help fans celebrate with Santo, the Cubs are offering a limited allotment of $10 bleacher seats throughout the team’s next homestand against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, Monday through July 4. Fans can purchase these tickets by entering the promo code “SANTO” when purchasing bleacher tickets on Cubs.com.
