Hall of Famer Sandberg to manage Peoria Chiefs

Yes! That will bring him to 5/3rd next year...

CHICAGO (AP) -- Ryne Sandberg is bringing his Hall of Fame credentials back to the minor leagues.

The former Chicago Cubs second baseman was hired Tuesday as the manager of the team's Class A affiliate at Peoria of the Midwest League. It will be Sandberg's first managerial assignment and hopes it will lead to one in the majors.

With Tom Brookens managing the Whitecaps and Lance Parrish managing the Loons, 2007 will be a fun year. Someone wake me up when spring gets here.
