Ex-Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa has a Book Deal
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.
