LaRussa starts and finishes career in KC

NL manager Tony LaRussa was a bonus baby signed by the old KC Athletics in the pre-draft years of the early 1960s. "I started here in 1963 with the Kansas City Athletics and to think the last time I put on a uniform is in Kansas City is an unbelievable coincidence," said LaRussa, who was brought out of retirement to manage in the game after the Cardinals won the pennant and World Series last year.
