La Russa in talks to work for MLB
Tony La Russa says he’s talked to Commissioner Bud Selig about
working for Major League Baseball in some capacity.
La Russa, who retired as a manager after guiding the St. Louis
Cardinals to the World Series title last year, was visiting with
the Detroit Tigers at spring training Tuesday. La Russa is good
friends with Tigers manager Jim Leyland and has a longstanding
relationship with general manager Dave Dombrowski.
La Russa was vague when talking about what he might do for MLB
but said he would not be taking Joe Torre’s old job as executive
vice president of baseball operations.
He said he’d be working with Selig but he’s ”not sure how
official the commissioner wants to make it.”
