La Russa Speaks at SEMO


By WSIL Sports

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. -- Former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa spoke at Southeast Missouri State University Thursday night.

Hundreds turned out for the event sponsored by the school. The theme of the evening was 'Leading Successful Teams.'

The former manager shared stories from his time in a Cardinal uniform, but told the audience he is not interested in making a return to the dugout.

La Russa spent the summer working with the commissioner's office on special assignments. He's also busy with the Tony La Russa Animal Rescue Foundation, which provides programs within its dual mission of companion animal rescues and animals "rescuing" people.
