Report: LaRussa, Pujols to Attend Beck Rally
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and slugger Albert Pujols plan to attend a rally hosted by conservative pundit Glenn Beck on Saturday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The newspaper posted a story on its website Friday that says the manager will introduce Pujols at the gathering by the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

The Cardinals are in Washington to play the Nationals.

La Russa and Pujols met with Beck in the Cardinals clubhouse two months ago.

The Cardinals manager stepped into politics earlier this year, too, when he said he supported a much-protested immigration law in Arizona that has since been put on hold by a federal judge.
