Cincinnati Reds Highlights
Barry Larkin and Ron Santo inducted into the Hall of Fame
Two great players of Major League Baseball have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday.
Barry Larkin and Ron Santo, both prominent players during their time, have been given baseball’s highest honor for their accomplishments during their baseball career.
Larkin was a former star shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds. He was originally a two-sport star in high school and accepted a football scholarship to Michigan to play for Bo Schembechler. He was however redshirted and told that he will only be allowed to play baseball and the rest was history.
Drafted fourth by the Reds in 1985, he became an All-Star after only two seasons on the team and his career quickly took off, playing his entire 19-year career with Cincinnati.
Ron Santo’s award was accepted on his behalf by his wife Vicki. Santo passed away in 2010 due to diabetes and cancer. He was a standout third baseman of the Chicago Cubs from 1960-1974 and was their beloved broadcaster from 1990-2010.
As a broadcaster for the Cubs, he was widely known for unabashedly rooting for the Cubs which endeared him to fans who have never even seen him play.
