Had em All the Way

Legendary manager Tony La Russa explains how it's done. Then he retires.

Congratulations to future Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa for guiding the St. Louis Cardinals to his personal third world championship and to the eleventh in the Cardinals storied history. La Russa’s success, coming from far back in the National League standings as late as mid-September to overcome the Atlanta Braves, taking on two favored teams, before then defeating the Texas Rangers in a seven-game World Series, belongs to the ages. The St. Louis Cardinals take the title of best baseball team from another surprising club: the 2010 San Francisco Giants. The long 2011 baseball season is over.
