After leading the St. Louis Cardinals to the World Series title in historic fashion, manager Tony LaRussa has decided to retire from baseball after spending the last 33 years as a manager.
"I think this just feels like it's time to end it," the 67-year-old La Russa said at a news conference at Busch Stadium.
The World Series win over Texas was the third of La Russa's career. He guided the Cardinals to the championship despite being 10½ games behind Atlanta on Aug. 25 for the final playoff spot in the National League.
La Russa retires third on the all-time wins list, 35 behind second-place John McGraw. In addition to this season, he won championships in Oakland in 1989 and St. Louis in 2006.
MY TAKE: I was never a fan of LaRussa and won't really miss him. However, he was a hard worker and most often had the respect of his players. Going out on top like he did this season and in the fashion the Cards did it is pretty sweet though. The Cardinals will take a big step back in his absence, especially if Albert Pujols signs elsewhere.
