Let’s not forget this old Cub Ron Santo the original Kris Bryant
Ron Santo is my favorite 3rd baseman of all time. If we are going to nitpick it’s Cal Ripken jr but I’ll always consider him a short stop. When I really started to get into baseball and the Cubs he was there for me to listen to ever day. He played back in the day when players actually played a career with one team. I really miss that. His batting numbers weren’t stellar but his play at 3rd was like a black hole.
It really stinks that all of these Hall of Famers from back in the day don’t have more video. When I’m old I feel like we are not appreciating that one day we can show these great players of this era to our kids easily. This going to be thousands of hours of video on the internet of guys like Kris Bryant and Rizzo to show. When these guys eventually get to the Hall talk we can actually show why this guy deserves to get in.
