6/8 Countdown to Cooperstown

Ron Santo will be immortalized in Cooperstown in six weeks, and visitors to the Baseball Hall of Fame can celebrate his legacy now. Some of the artifact highlights include:

* A 1969 Chicago Cubs road jersey worn by Ron Santo

* A bat used by Santo in 1969, when he hit 29 home runs and notched a career-best 123 RBI

* A batting helmet used by Santo in 1966, featuring one of the first models that incorporated an ear flap

* Santo’s 1968 Gold Glove Award, his fifth straight at third base

The 2012 Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. CT on July 22 at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown and will be shown live on MLB Network.
