A Ryne Sandberg Announcement

The Cubs announced today that the retirement ceremony for Ryne Sandberg's #23 will take place prior to the Sunday, August 28 game against the Florida Marlins at Wrigley Field.

More details and a link to follow later.

UPDATE [2005-2-23 10:41:05 by Al]: Here's the official Cubs press release on the retirement ceremony.

UPDATE [2005-2-23 15:21:58 by Al]: You know, announcing this today, before tickets go on sale, will create extra demand for tickets for August 28... obviously, that game will sell out anyway, but now that it is the official Sandberg retirement ceremony, it will probably climb up the list of most-desired dates.
