Ryne Sandberg talks Cubs, Pepsi “Cherry on Top” Sweepstakes on WGN News Now Sports Talk

Ryne Sandberg retired in 1997 as a member of the Cubs, having played all but 13 games of his major league career with the franchise. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005 and remains an ambassador for the franchise.

This Twitter contest will give 30 fans the chance to get tickets to the games at Wrigley Field on July 16th and 17th along with a party at Gallagher Way with Sandberg.
