Philadelphia was hosting two notable athletic events on Sunday. One was the Phillies’ series finale against the Nationals, and the other was the Broad Street Run. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg inadvertently found himself involved in both.
From the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb:
An Uber car dropped Ryne Sandberg on the wrong side of Broad this morning. He ran some 50 feet with the racers to cross. No medal awarded.

Sandberg also got to enjoy his team win 1-0 over the Nationals, taking two out of three in the series against their division rival. If Sandberg threw up on Sunday, it wasn’t because of his awful bullpen for once; it was because of the running.
