Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa is leaving the dugout for good. La Russa announced his retirement from managing Monday, weeks after he left the Chicago White Sox after undergoing a medical procedure on his pacemaker. La Russa also announced that a "second health issue was also diagnosed" during a physical exam that makes it "impossible for me to be the White Sox manager in 2023." La Russa did not explain the "second medical issue" while requesting "privacy related to my health issues." He added that "my overall prognosis is good."
La Russa leaves the game as one of the most accomplished managers in MLB history. In 35 years as a manager, La Russa won 2,897 games, claimed six pennants and won three World Series titles. Only Connie Mack has more wins as a manager.
