SPRING TRAINING: Sandberg excited about team

Lehigh Valley IronPigs manager Ryne Sandberg is looking forward to having his roster complete and working with his players.

The Philadelphia Phillies have announced that they've added Ryne Sandberg to the Major League coaching staff.  Sandberg will be the team's third base coach and work with the infielders on a daily basis.

The move comes one day after the regular season came to an end and three Phillies coaches were let go by the organization.  Sandberg has been the IronPigs manager the last two seasons, both winning seasons in the Lehigh Valley.
