Ron Santo baseball card: The Cubs' most devoted fan

Ron Santo was appreciated as a third baseman for the Chicago Cubs, but he was beloved as a broadcaster (who can forget his famous, simple, “Oh no” in 1998?). The father who raised money for juvenile diabetes and suffered from the disease himself has passed away at age 70. He was known by many as the Cubs’ biggest fan, and he’s being remembered today on Twitter by sad fans who loved hearing his take on their cursed but beloved Cubbies.

Here are some tweets honoring him today. Add your own remembrances below.
