La Russa will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the Show Me Center.
La Russa’s jersey No. 10 was retired recently by the St. Louis Cardinals after he led the Cardinals to three National League championships and World Series titles in 2006 and 2011. La Russa ranks second all-time in post-season with 70 wins, and became the first manager to retire in the same season after winning a World Series title. He is the winningest manager in St. Louis Cardinals history and ranks third in major league history in victories.
La Russa and wife Elaine co-founded Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation in 1991. ARF provides programs within its dual mission of companion animal rescues and animals “rescuing” people.
