On the last day of October 2011, Tony La Russa ended a fifty-year in baseball when he announced his retirement. This four-time Manager of the Year went out on a high note, having just won his third World Series. For the St. Louis Cardinals skipper, the last championship had been no easy pickings: As late as August 24th, statisticians gave them only a one percent chance of making the playoffs. Even after their astonishing end of the season run to capture the National League pennant, they still had to come from behind to win the World Series. In One Last Strike, one of baseball's most beloved men describes a comeback that no true fan will soon forget. A Barnes & Noble bestseller; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
