The passing of legendary Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo has not only put a face to the diabetes epidemic in America, but it reminds us of the Hall of Fame's inability to "get it."

Anybody who is a 9-time All Star in any sport should be in the Hall of Fame.

It's a fact that there are fewer third basemen in the Baseball of Fame than any other position.

While, Santo is no Mike Schmidt, he certainly belongs in the Hall.

While it's a travesty that Santo hasn't been elected into the Hall of Fame; diabetes should be the issue on everybody's minds. Santo suffered from diabetes and lost both of his legs.

The Diabetes Epidemic in America is very serious as it is estimated 24 million American suffer from the disease.

Ron Santo's death should be a reminder that diabetes is a tragic force to be reckoned with in America.
