Ryno to join #Cubs as ambassador
Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg will rejoin the Cubs as an ambassador to the team, with an official announcement expected this weekend at the Cubs Convention.
Sandberg, 56, who played 15 seasons with the Cubs from 1982-94 and again from 1996-97, was on the list of attendees at the Cubs Convention, which officially opens Friday. A team official said details of Sandberg’s role would likely be announced at the fan fest.
A nine-time Gold Glove winner and Most Valuable Player with the Cubs, Sandberg was back at Wrigley Field last October when he threw out a ceremonial first pitch before Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Cardinals.
