Three World Series championships. Thirty years in the dugout. Third all time in MLB victories, behind only Connie Mack and John McGraw. Tony La Russa is one of the best managers in baseball history.

Late last year, he retired from the sport after leading his St. Louis Cardinals to an unlikely World Series victory over the Texas Rangers, a historic ending to a historic career.

La Russa has captured the spirit of that 2011 campaign, along with his thoughts on over three decades as a manager, in the newly released book One Last Strike: Fifty Years in Baseball, Ten and a Half Games Back, and One Final Championship Season.

While touring the country reading and signing his new work, La Russa found a spare moment to sit down and share his thoughts on everything from Melky Cabrera to what he would do if he was the commissioner. 

Read on for the full interview.
