    His nickname was 'Ryno.'
    After playing just thirteen games for the Phillies, they traded him to the Cubs.
    He was shy and reserved in his early major-league days.
    He tended to have slow starts to every season.
    He got unwarranted comparisons to Michael Jordan after he retired in the middle of the 1994 season and then returned for the 1996 and 1997 seasons.
    He cited a messy divorce as a reason for his first retirement. His wife was fooling around with Rafael Palmeiro
    He couldn't deliver a World Series to the Cubs (though that's an extremely tall order).
    He is considered one of the best second basemen ever.
    He retired having held the record for fielding percentage and home runs among second basemen.
    He was the first player to have a 40-homer season and a 50-stolen base season.
    He had to deal with his wife cheating on him with Rafael Palmeiro.
    Parade Magazine named him an All-American high school football quarterback after his senior year.
    When named to People Magazine's 'Most Beautiful People' list for 1996, he said 'Wow...they really don't know too many people, do they?'
    He led the Cubs to two postseason appearances.
    He wore the same number as fellow Chicago pro Michael Jordan (#23).
    He is revered in Chicago.
