Sandberg hired to manage Phillies' Triple-A team

The Phillies have announced they've hired Ryne Sandberg as their manager at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Sandberg served as the manager for the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate in Iowa the last two seasons and was a finalist to replace Lou Piniella, but was passed over in favor of Mike Quade.

Sandberg was drafted by the Phillies in 1978 and debuted with the Phillies in 1981 before being traded to the Cubs along with Larry Bowa for Ivan DeJesus before the 1982 season.
