The late Cubs legend Ron Santo, a 13-year third baseman in the 1960s and 1970s and a voice of the Cubs for two decades, lived in this exceptionally fine Bannockgurn ranch for 30+ years until his death from bladder cancer in 2010. Santo's widow, Vicki, listed the 2,500-square-foot 3-bed on a half-acre in June, reports Bob Goldsborough of The Trib, and there's already a buyer lying in wait. The radiant home, built in 1962, has gorgeous wood-panelled living and club rooms, a massive deck w/ outdoor kitchen, and a manicured yard w/ gardens. Vicki Santo tells Goldsborough she's bound for Arizona. The listing itself doesn't give anything away, except to proclaim "simply a home run!"
