Cardinals Will Retire Tony La Russa's No. 10 Jersey

The St. Louis Cardinals will retire Tony La Russa’s No. 10 jersey, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

"Tony's managerial tenure with the Cardinals will always stand out as one of the greatest eras in Cardinal history," team chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said. "His passion for winning and his leadership skills were hallmarks of a style that Cardinals fans will always remember with fondness. We look forward to May 11 as we honor Tony for his historic achievements as a Cardinal."

His number will be the 13th overall to be retired by the club.

La Russa managed the Cardinals for 16 seasons. During that time he helped the club win a record 1,408 games, as well as three pennants and two World Series titles. In his tenure with St. Louis, they had just three losing seasons.

The 66-year-old made his decision to retire shortly after the 2011 season, becoming the first manager in MLB history to retire directly after winning a World Series.
