    Good news, but it's a damn shame it took his death to make it happen.

    And why shouldn't there be? Ronnie always said he did not want to go in after he died. Why is it that he was not considered a Hall of Famer for 20+ years, but all of a sudden after he dies, he is? It's a joke! It's a travesty of epic proportions that he's not around to enjoy this.

    This is a serious travesty on that committee's part for not electing him years ago. I hope that they all now live in shame because of this pure injustice.

    Eh, too late. It's not like he can celebrate and enjoy it.

    It's nice for his family, but still doesn't benefit Ron any.

    Should have happened last year.

    An incredible man, who I grew up idolizing and never stopped loving. Since he joined the Cubs over 50 years, Cubs fans have shared many joys and many defeats. Through it all, Santo was there - as a player, an announcer, and a fan. They can never take away the HOF that will forever be a part of his name - Ron Santo, HOF 2011! I raise my glass to one of the all time greats!

    My friend, who is a White Sox's fan, has the conception he wasn't inducted because he was simply an ***. Am I missing something?

    I'm supposed to feel happy about this right?! This was supposed to be a special day for Ronnie,his family and Cubs fans everywhere but instead he's passed away his family is probably beyond giving a **** about the HOF after all those years of waiting and we're all left feeling conflicted about it all so **** the veterans committee! He's BEEN in the HOF for years now anyway.....the Cubs HOF where he's appreciated and belongs we miss you Ronnie......

    It's a shame that the beat offs who didn't vote for him while he was alive, voted for him after he died.

    "Voting shall be based upon the player's record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played".

    Are these voters kidding? None of his above listed qualifications have ever changed. The voters who finally decided that he met the qualifications after he died, should be ashamed of themselves.

    Here's the committee. I wonder who had a change of heart after voting no for him while he was alive.

    I wonder if the person doing the acceptance speech will have the nerve to call the voters out, he deserved to be in a long time ago, he deserved to give his own speech.
