Kirsch of Three Lakes shares Santo stories


By Gary Ridderbusch

When Ron Santo was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., July 22, 2012, a longtime family friend was sitting among the special guests — Jim Kirsch of Three Lakes.

Kirsch grew up in Chicago and became good friends with the Santo family when he worked at Happy Day Stables in Chicago. Santo played third base for the Chicago Cubs from 1960 through 1973.
