Santo Still ``Speaks'' in partner's tribute

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Two years have passed since Ron Santo's death, yet his long time radio partner, Pat Hughes, continues to keep alive the spirit, passion and joy they shared for 15 years.
``It's about remembering and smiling,'' Hughes said of the collection of excerpts from their years together broadcasting Cubs games. ``I've heard some of these maybe a hundred times, and yet I still laugh.''
The CD of ``Ron Santo: Cubs Legend'' has been a popular holiday gift, heightened this year after the induction of Santo into the Hall of Fame. It is part of a collection of audio CDs Hughes has produced on a dozen famous sports broadcasters, including the newest on Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons, whose work covering the San Francisco Giants includes the legendary call by Hodges of Bobby Thompson's home run to win the 1951 National League pennant.
Information is available for all the CDs at ``www.baseballvoices.com''.
