La Russa announces retirement from Cardinals

By the AP (via Tampa Bay Online)

Tony La Russa retired as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, three days after winning a dramatic, seven-game World Series against the Texas Rangers.

“I think this just feels like it's time to end it,” said the 67-year-old La Russa, a Tampa native who attended Jefferson High, at a news conference at Busch Stadium.

The World Series win over Texas was the third of La Russa's 33-year career. The manager guided the Cardinals to the championship despite being 10 1/2 games behind Atlanta on Aug. 25 for the final playoff spot in the National League.
