"He (Ryne Sandberg) has the most consistent approach to the game I've ever seen. He's similar to (Al) Kaline. You could watch Kaline play for five years and look back and say 'I've never seen him mess up a play or make a mistake.' I know we use the word consistent a lot, but in Sandberg's case it applies." - Manager Jim Frey (Quoted on Hall of Fame Website)

Did you know that when Ryne Sandberg hit a National League leading forty home runs in 1990 ( Top 25 ), he was the first second baseman to top the senior circuit since Rogers Hornsby hit 39 homers in 1925 ( Top 25 )? [ Home Run Champions ]

Did you know Ryno was only the third second baseman in baseball history to hit 40-or-more homers in a season, joining Major League record holders Rogers Hornsby and Davey Johnson , who each hit 42 home runs ( 1922 and 1973 respectively)? [ Doubles Records ]

Ryne Sandberg Hall of Fame Plaque
Ryne Sandberg | National Baseball Hall of Fame Plaque | Class of 2005 ( HOF )
Ryne Sandberg "was one of the most gifted second baseman in baseball, playing his position with steady confidence and making his defensive play look easy and smooth." How smooth? Nine consecutive Gold Glove Awards , the most ever won by any second baseman consecutively! The quote is from Baseball's Top 10: Ranking the Best Major League Players by Position (Robert Kuenster, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 03/26/2015, Page 30), where Ryno was ranked the ninth greatest second baseman ever!

When Ryne Sandberg hung up his cleats, he had the highest career fielding percentage (.989) at second base, the record for most consecutive errorless games (123) at second base, and he had hit more home runs than other second baseman in baseball history!
