Ryne Dee Sandberg (born September 18, 1959 in Spokane, Washington), nicknamed "Ryno," is a former second baseman in Major League Baseball who spent nearly his entire career with the Chicago Cubs. He was named after relief pitcher Ryne Duren, and is recognized as one of the best second basemen of all time. Sandberg was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in January 2005; he was formally inducted in ceremonies on July 31, 2005. He was the manager of the Chicago Cubs AAA affliate Iowa Cubs for the 2010 season.

Sandberg established himself as a perennial All-Star and Gold Glove candidate, making 10 consecutive All-Star appearances and winning nine consecutive Gold Gloves from 1983 to 1991. His career .989 fielding percentage is a major league record at second base.

Sandberg was a star high school quarterback in Spokane, and was even offered a chance to become quarterback at Washington State. However, he turned it down after being drafted in the 20th round of the 1978 amateur draft by the Philadelphia Phillies. He went on to make his major league debut as a shortstop for the Phillies in 1981.
