Man on a Mission
Tony LaRussa is known in the major leagues. When asked about him players around the league have on of two thoughts. "Manager that I would most like to play for" or "Manager I would least like to play for". The man who wrote the foreward in this book, Joe Buck, calls him the most misunderstood man in baseball. Who's the most misunderstood woman? (That's not important, Chad) Although, a very stern person Tony cares more about his players than any other manager.
I predict that next Rob Rains will talk about Tony's childhood. Afterall, most biographies in chronological order.
