Cardinals retire LaRussa's number
ST. LOUIS — Tony La Russa's first reaction to the St. Louis Cardinals' decision to retire his No. 10 jersey was one word: "Incredulous." After all, it's only been a little more than six months since the World Series parade.
"It's not something you think about, or expect," La Russa said.
But one of his former players thought a mid-May tribute was a bit tardy.
Pitcher Dave Stewart, one of the horses of La Russa's rotations in Oakland, said during a ceremony prior to the Braves-Cardinals game Friday that the number should have been retired while La Russa was still making out lineup cards.
"This day is long overdue," Stewart said. "Best manager I ever played for."
Groundskeepers cut the grass with a big "10" in short center field in tribute to the 67-year-old La Russa, who managed the Cardinals for 16 seasons and retired after leading a long-shot NL wild-card team to the title.
La Russa wore all three of his championship rings, the two he won with the Cardinals on the right ring finger and pinkie of his right hand.Comment on this story
