BREAKING: Tony La Russa retires

Tony La Russa
On the heels of winning his 3rd World Series title, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa announced his retirement Monday morning.

The 67-year old La Russa won 2 titles with the Cardinals and is generally regarded as one of the greatest managers in Major League Baseball history.

He spent time managing the Oakland A's in the late '80's and early '90' after beginning his career in 1979, managing the Chicago White Sox.

As most of you know, the Cardinals won their 2nd title just this past Friday, beating the Texas Rangers for the 2011 World series championship.

He spent 33 years as a baseball manager, the past 16 of them in St. Louis. La Russa has won 1,408 games and will, in 5-years, find himself in the Baseball Hall-of Fame.
