CHICAGO – Former Chicago Cubs great Ryne Sandberg joined fellow Hall of Famers Fergie Jenkins, Ernie Banks and Billy Williams in throwing out the first pitch before the home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Sandberg is the manager in Philadelphia after a 15-year playing career with the Cubs and then coaching in their minor league system. He was passed over to manage the Cubs and joined the Phillies organization in 2011 before being promoted to manager last season. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2005.

The Cubs are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field.
