Ron Santo Delivered 342 ‘Longballs’

Ron Santo Delivered 342 ‘Longballs’

When you’re on a team that features one of the greatest power-hitting infielders of all-time in Ernie Banks and one of the sweetest lefty strokes in the game’s history of Billy Williams, it is tough to stand out as an offensive threat!

But that is just what Ron Santo did.

He crushed 342 home runs during his 15-years in the big leagues.  While he never hit more than 33 in any single year, Santo reached double figures in 13 consecutive years while also eclipsing the 25 HR mark 8 times.
