Directed by Jeff Santo • Documentary • With Ron Santo, Bill Murray, William Petersen • 2003 • 98 minutes
A documentary about Ron Santo’s remarkable life and career, not only examining his years as a player and broadcaster, but his longtime struggle with the disease that has cost him a leg but has failed to break his spirit, and the crusade by fans and admirers to see Santo inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Noted Cubs enthusiasts Bill Murray, Dennis Franz, and Gary Sinese, and baseball legends Ernie Banks, Johnny Bench, Willie Mays, and Tommy Lasorda are interviewed onscreen; actor Joe Mantegna narrates.
"A terrific character sketch, capturing both the rough edges and the compassion of its subject." —Los Angeles Times
