“There isn’t one factor that dominates my decision,” La Russa said. “They all just come together telling you your time is over.

He led the Cardinals to the championship in a season in which he faced enormous obstacles. La Russa said his decision was not made based on a particular factor, but had started to doubt a return in midseason of 2012. He said he made his decision in August and expressed his wishes of retirement to general manager John Mozeliak and later he informed the retirement to the coaching staff. Basketball odds

The manager , 67retires with 2,728 managerial victories from Major League Baseball ranking third in the list of victories, just behind by John McGraw (2,763) and Connie Mack (3,731). He’s also the only manager to win multiple pennants in Major League Baseball history in each league and the second manager to win the World Series title in both leagues.

Chairman and chief executive officer Bill DeWitt Jr. expressed his gratitude to Tony Larussa has done for the Cardinals all these years.

“My mind’s not as strong as Tony’s because I was thinking about this all the time,” Mozeliak said. “I know the impact he had on this organization and specifically on the 2011 team. It’s hard for me to swallow but at the same time I have to admire that he never wavered. Today is about Tony; tomorrow is about the next chapter for the St. Louis Cardinals.

“He’s been a leader, a mentor and a friend and when you have somebody step away from your life that incorporates all that, it’s never a great feeling.”

La Russa joined the Cardinals in 1996, during the 16 seasons the Cardinals finished first place 7 times and made the postseason 9 times.
