Ryne Sandberg will be a speaker at the annual Charleston Riverdogs Auction and Hot Stove Banquet Jan. 22nd. The proceeds from the banquet will benefit The Citadel, the College of Charleston, Charleston Southern baseball program, and the Singleton Memorial Fund. The Singleton Memorial Fund was dedicated to Sharonda Coleman-Singleton who was killed, along with 8 others, at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina this past June.
The Spokane, Washington native, Ryan Sandberg played professional baseball for 16 years for both the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs before making a move to managing in 2013. Sandberg was drafted in 1981 by the Philadelphia Phillies. As a player Sandberg was selected to 10 consecutive all star appearances, nine consecutive gold gloves, the record for home runs as a second baseman and an MVP award before retiring in 1997. In 2005 Sandberg was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame and soon thereafter had his number 23 retired by the Chicago Cubs. Following his playing career and HOF induction, Sandberg was named manager of the Phillies in 2013 where he compiled a 119-159 record as a manager.
The Charleston Riverdogs Hot Stove Banquet and Auction will be held on Jan. 22nd and will included Hall of Fame MLB player Ryne Sandberg speaking. The event will look to have a impressive turnout and should do great things for the recipients of the donations.
