[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today released the following statement after learning that Chicago Cubs legend, Ron Santo, was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame:


“To all of us who continue inspired by his work on and off the field, Ron Santo has always been a Hall of Famer.  Today, it is official.
