La Russa finished his St. Louis career with 1,408 regular season wins, which is more than any other manager in team history. He took the team to three World Series.
La Russa becomes the third Cardinals manager to have his number retired by the team. Red Schoendienst, a Hall of Fame player, had his No. 2 retired in 1996. Whitey Herzog, inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010, had his number retired the same season. Hall of Fame second baseman Rogers Hornsby was recognized by the club in 1997, but Hornsby did not wear a number during his term with the Redbirds. Former third baseman Ken Boyer's No. 14 is retired. He lasted barely two seasons as manager. Boyer's number was retired in 1984, four years after managing his last game.
