Cardinals manager Tony La Russa announces retirement 3 days after winning 3rd World Series
By The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) ' Three days after winning the World Series, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is retiring.

The 67-year-old manager announced his retirement at a news conference Monday 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 losing ace starter Adam Wainwright for the season in spring training and despite being 10 1/2 games behind Atlanta on Aug. 25.



La Russa retires third on the all-time wins list, just 35 behind John McGraw. In addition to this season, he won championships in Oakland in 1989 and St. Louis in 2006.
