Cubs broadcaster Santo hospitalized

4/22/2007 - Chicago Cubs

CHICAGO -- Cubs broadcaster and former All-Star Ron Santo
remained hospitalized Sunday while underdoing tests for an
irregular heartbeat.

The 67-year-old Santo was admitted to the hospital Saturday
night and his return to the radio booth is undetermined.

Santo was diagnosed with Type I diabetes when he was 18, and
both legs were amputated below the knee in recent years. He had a
heart bypass in 2000 and was diagnosed with bladder tumors four
years ago.

Santo was a nine-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove winner
at third base for the Cubs.
