Ryne Sandberg was a second baseman for the Chicago Cubs and briefly the Philadelphia Phillies. Sandberg now manages a Phillies minor league team, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, and is a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame 2005 class.

In his 16 years in the major leagues, Sandberg was a 10-time All-Star, nine time Gold Glover, seven time Silver Slugger and was the National League MVP in 1984. Ryno’s .989 career fielding percentage at second base is a record for second basemen. Interestingly, Sandberg is named after three time All-Star Ryne Duren. 

Instead of the interview being written completely, I am experimenting with a YouTube video of the interview. Hopefully, I will do some video interviews soon so you can actually watch the interview.

Please comment below if you enjoy the older format of written interviews, instead of YouTube video interviews.
