Tony La Russa has been in baseball since breaking into the “bigs” as a player back in 1963 with the Kansas City Athletics, but it was as a manger that he’s most acclaimed.
And as a manager for the Chicage White Sox, Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals, there’s no doubt Tony La Russa’s been one of the best.
Over the course of his managerial career La Russa guided his teams to three World Series titles, six league championships and twelve division titles.
He was also voted “Manager of the Year” four times and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014.
Now in the front office of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Tony La Russa shares his views on what makes a great manager and also what makes great players.
