      Title: Ron santo's linguine with clam sauce
 Categories: Pasta
      Yield: 4 Servings
      1    Cube clam base
      1 c  Ocean clams (25.5 oz)
      1 tb Olive oil
      1    Bunch green onion, chopped
    1/2 c  Diced domestic mushrooms
    1/8 c  Fresh basil, chopped
      2 tb Fresh minced garlic

  Before he became a Hall of Fame contender as one of the best
  third-basemen in history, Ron Santo toiled as a groundkeeper, a
  batboy, and an usher for Seattle's PAcific Coast League team. But
  sweet success came along soon enough, says Santo. "Vada Pinson, who
  was a great ballplayer for the Reds, used to come by, and I'd shine
  his shoes. He went to the majors in 1958, and by 1960, I was in the
  big leagues, so I went from shining his shoes to playing against him
  in just two years."
  Santo put away his shoeshine kit when the Chicago Cubs drafted him in
  1960, and he played for them through 1973. Over his 13 years with the
  club, he won five Rawlings Gold Glove awards and racked up 337 home
  runs, the third-highest total in Cubs history.
  Thes days Santo spends his ballpark time in the broadcast booth
  rather than the dugout, as the Cubs play-by-play analyst. "It's a lot
  easier up where I am now than it is down on the field."
  When Santo isn't on the air, he's in the kitchen of his restaurant and
  sports bar, Ron Santo's American Rotisserie, which specializes in
  chicken, ribs, steaks, and pasta. "I eat there every night with my
  wife, and the waiters and waitresses will come over and say, 'They'd
  like to see you at that table over there for an autograph.' I
  designed a baseball card for the restaurant with a picture of me in a
  suit on the back and a picture of me in a baseball uniform on the
  front. It gives all my stats. My customers eat it up."
  That is, when they're not devouring his Linguine with Clam Sauce.
  In a bowl, dissolve clam base in reserved juice from canned clams. In
  large saucepan, heat olive oil until sizzling. Saute onions,
  mushrooms, basil and garlic. Add butter and cayenne. Stir in
  tomatoes, wine and clams in base mixture, and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  Cook linguine until it is AL DENTE; drain well. Top with sauce.
