After 3 World Series titles, La Russa retires

By

Tony La Russa waited until after the championship parade and then called a team meeting with his players…And with that, the 67-year-old La Russa said goodbye to baseball and became the first manager to retire immediately after leading his team to a Series title - the third of his career…He was treated at the Mayo Clinic in May for shingles, which left his face swollen and right eye nearly shut. The manager downplayed his health, saying "it had no bearing on my future."
