1969: Ron Santo Clicked His Heels

by John J. Quirk

“But with the Cubs, no matter what they do, it’s seldom enough.
Wait ‘til next year is here again in August.”
By Mike Kiley, Chicago Sun-Times, August 22, 2005.

Ernie Banks hit another home run.
Billy Williams hit another double.
Ferguson Jenkins pitched another shutout.
At the hot corner, Ron Santo had snagged another smash down the third base line.
Later, at the end of the game, Santo excitedly clicked his heels.
And yet, at the conclusion of a long season, the pennant was lost.
