Pat Hughes to Write Book about Ron Santo

Pat Hughes is set to write a book about his partner. Ron Santo: A Perfect Ten, a biography about the legendary broadcaster, is scheduled Father's Day. The biography is sure to include many tales from Pat's 15 years next to Ron Santo. Rich Wolfe will serve as the book's co-author.

Hughes started his first year with a new partner, Keith Moreland, when Spring Training started two weeks ago. He took last weekend off the broadcasts but will return when the Cubs play the Reds on WGN-Radio on Saturday.

Tomorrow will be Ron Santo day in Mesa, Arizona. A pregame ceremony will honor Ronnie before the Cubs take on the Indians at HoHoKam Park. The March 10 date was chosen because of Santo's jersey number.'s pregame show will include a special tribute.

It will be interesting to see how else Ron Santo is honored this season in addition to this book. WGN Radio released a Pat & Ron Show CD several years back, so perhaps a part two is in the works. Pat Hughes does a great series called Baseball Voices, but that mostly focuses on Hall of Fame announcers.

On a side note... I appologize for the lack of posting this week, I'll catch everyone up with a post on Friday or Saturday.
