Monday October 24th, 2011

While Tony La Russa and the St. Louis Cardinals are busy trying to clinch a World Series title, his daughter, Devon La Russa, is making amends for a tweet she posted Sunday night, reports Yahoo! Sports.

The tweet, now deleted, was in reference to Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington admitted cocaine use during the 2009 season:

“I saw a crack head doing “The Wash” today. Coincidence?  I think not…,” the tweet allegedly said.

The message received backlash from Rangers fans causing the younger La Russa to delete it.  She posted a new tweet explaining that it all was just a joke.!/devonkai/status/128354744195481600
