Tony LaRussa Announces Retirement
In a Morning news conference at Busch Stadium, The Saint Louis Cardinals announced that manager Tony La Russa is retiring. The team had hoped to have their skipper back for a 17th season, but after 33 years as manager LaRussa decided it was time to hang ‘em up.
La Russa retires third on the all-time wins list, just 35 behind John McGraw. In addition to this season, he won championships in Oakland in 1989 and St. Louis in 2006.
Tony La Russa is scheduled to appear on the Late Show With David Letterman tonight.
If you’re gonna go out, might as well go out on top.
In other managerial news, the Nationals announced today they’ve exercised Davey Johnson’s managerial option for 2012.
