Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The Philadelphia Phillies removed the interim tag from Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg’s manager title.

Sandberg, 53, signed a three-year contract through 2016 with a club option to extend the agreement through 2017, the Phillies said in an e-mailed news release today.

Sandberg was promoted from third-base coach Aug. 16 after the Phillies ended Charlie Manuel’s eight-plus season tenure, which included a World Series victory and five straight division titles.

The Phillies suffered a 4-0 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers in Sandberg’s Major League Baseball managerial debut and have gone 18-16 under him.

The Phillies are third in the five-team National League East with a 71-83 record, 20 games behind the division-leading Atlanta Braves.
