CHICAGO – December 3, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement regarding the passing of Chicago Cubs legend Ron Santo.

“Anyone fortunate enough to meet Ron Santo met a man who cared about everything important in life,” said Governor Quinn. “Ron Santo cared deeply about his family, the Chicago Cubs and their fans throughout the world.
