About Tony La Russa
In the history of baseball, Tony La Russa is one of the greatest managers. He has an estimated net worth of $30 million that he earned as a player and coach in the Major League Baseball (MLB). Born Anthony La Russa Jr. on October 4, 1944 in Tampa, Florida, he has appeared in the Colt League World Series. He was then signed as a middle infielder by the Kansas City Athletics before the start of the 1962 season. At 18, he debuted in the league but only made .199 hits in six major seasons over a ten-year period.
In 1971, La Russa was traded to the Atlanta Braves. He then ended his career in 1973 with the Chicago Braves. He attended Florida State University College of Law where he earned his Juris Doctor degree. Since then, he became a player-coach for minor league teams. In 1978, he was appointed manager by the minor league team the Knoxville Sox. He went to coach the Iowa Oaks in 1979 until August 2nd of that year due to his appointment as manager of the Chicago White Sox. He led the White Sox to an American League West division title in 1983 but he was fired during the 1986 season.
Several weeks later, Tony was hired as the Oakland Athletics manager. He was the catalyst for the team’s three American League Championships and the 1989 World Series title. In 1995, he left the team to manage the St. Louis Cardinals. The team then won three National League championships as well as the 2006 and 2011 World Series titles. After 33 seasons as MLB manager and three days after winning the 2011 title, he announced his retirement on October 31, 2011.
