Monday, March 19, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- Retired St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is ready to look back on his amazing career.
William Morrow announced Monday that "One Last Strike: Fifty Years in Baseball, Ten and a Half Games Back, and One Final Championship Season," is tentatively scheduled to come out this fall. The book will be co-written by Rick Hummel, a longtime reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
La Russa retired last fall after managing the Cardinals to a dramatic World Series title.
The 67-year-old La Russa spent more than 30 years as a manager. His career included three World Series championships -- two with St. Louis, one with the Oakland Athletics -- and six league championships.
William Morrow is an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
