11/3 Santo has another chance at HOF
Former Cubs third baseman Ron Santo was one of 10 former players named to the Baseball Hall of Fame’s “Golden Era” ballot, which will be voted on by a special committee Dec. 5 at the Winter Meetings. The committee consists of 16 members, including Hall of Famers, executives, historians and media members. A candidate must receive at least 12 votes to be elected. Santo was a finalist on several occasions through the Veterans Committee. The long time third baseman and broadcaster died last December.
The other finalists on the ballot include Minnie Minoso, Buzzie Bavasi, Jim Katt, Allie Reynolds, Ken Boyer, Luis Tiant, Charlie O. Finley, Gil Hodges and Tony Oliva.
