The celebration may be ending a little early in St. Louis. Just days after winning a thrilling seven game World Series, St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa announced his retirement. The 67-year-old La Russa managed for 33 years in the big leagues, winning three World Series titles over the years and really revolutionizing the way the game is played. Joining The Takeaway to talk about La Russa’s legacy is George Vecsey, sports columnist for The New York Times and author of "Stan Musial: An American Life."
