Former Chicago Cub and Hall of Famer Ryne "Ryno" Sandberg and his wife, Margaret, visited with patients and staff at La Rabida early one recent morning and later taped a video pledge of support for the hospital whose mission mirrors that of the Sandbergs' foundation, Ryno Kid Care.


"We're honored to support the mission here at La Rabida," Ryne Sandberg said in the message recorded at the hospital's lakeside playground. Margaret Sandberg also delivered a message in Spanish.
