• Former Cubs third baseman Ron Santo will be immortalized in the Baseball Hall of Fame in six weeks, and visitors to Cooperstown can celebrate his legacy now. The Hall has added some Santo items for display. The list includes:

• A 1969 Cubs road jersey worn by Santo.

• A bat used by Santo in '69, when he hit 29 home runs and totaled a career-best 123 RBIs.

• A batting helmet Santo used in 1966, featuring one of the first models that incorporated an ear flap

• Santo's 1968 Gold Glove Award, his fifth straight at third base.

Santo will be inducted along with Reds shortstop Barry Larkin on July 22 at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, N.Y., which will be shown live on MLB Network.
