In light of Ryne Sandberg or “Ryan Sandburg” as some Chicago Cubs “fans” refer to him, getting the gig managing the Philadelphia Phillies for the rest of the year, I felt the need to re-publish this photo from a few years ago.
It’s from when Ryno came to Wrigley Field to manage the Low A Peoria Chiefs in the “Road to Wrigley.” He left a note for then Cubs manager Lou Piniella.
“Piniella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh.”
And here’s some pictures of Ryne Sandberg on the field that day.
I wonder if “Ryan Sandburg” people think the Orland Park high school is named after him, and not Carl Sandburg
Congrats to Ryne Sandberg for becoming a major league manager today. It’s not with the Cubs, but it’s still something.
