Cubs Great Ryne Sandberg Selling 3 Bedroom Co-op
In tune with Major League Baseball’s 2012 season opening this week, Cubs great and fan favorite, Ryne Sandberg, is selling his last piece of Chicago real estate. Sandberg’s three-bedroom Streeterville co-op is now on the market for $650k. The property boasts a great location on East Deleware framed by a view of Lake Michigan. The modest unit features with hardwood floors throughout, a fairly new kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, and the right amount of sporty flair.
Passed over twice for the position of Cubs’ Manager, most recently in the 2011-2012 off-season, Sandberg has been quoted as saying, “I’ve always said I hoped to manage in the big leagues. It’s baseball. I’m still hopeful of another opportunity. I don’t know what else I need to do, but I still hope there will be opportunities.”
After several seasons managing the AAA Iowa Cubs, Sandberg is now with the Philadelphia Phillies organization and in 2011 coached the Phillies’ Lehigh Valley team to its first winning season in years. I’m sure his neighbors, as well as the city of Chicago, will be sad to see this Hall of Fame second baseman go.
