The SportsXchange

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies officially removed the interim tag from Ryne Sandberg's title Sunday morning, making him the 52nd manager in team history.

The club announced Sandberg has signed a three-year contract with a club option for a fourth year.

Sandberg had been the interim manager since the Phillies fired Charlie Manuel on Aug. 16, and under him the club has gone 18-16.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005, Sandberg will be taking on managerial duties for the first time in his career.
