DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Chicago Cubs say Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg will manage Triple-A Iowa next season.

Sandberg managed the Double-A Tennessee Smokies in 2009. The 50-year-old Sandberg spent the previous two seasons managing Class A Peoria.

Sandberg spent 15 season in the majors, most of those with the Cubs. Sandberg won nine Gold Gloves, was a 10-time National League All-Star and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.

At Iowa, Sandberg replaces Bobby Dickerson, who is now with the Baltimore Orioles organization.
