Tony La Russa Newsbeat

Monday, July 03, 2017

Hummel: After 56 seasons, La Russa has plenty to offer in new role | St. Louis Cardinals | stltoday.com

This argument is so 2001. It isn’t, and never was, an either or choice.

“I don’t want knowledge to disappear,” said La Russa the other day over lunch at an Italian restaurant near Chase Field. “The new guys coming in just know their formulas.

“That’s what bothers me about guys like Leyland, Duncan and Oquendo. If we don’t pass that stuff around and it disappears, it will not be good for the game.”
...
“You’ve got to make sure that the lessons of George Kissell get passed along. That’s why I have no intent to ever stop doing something where I can contribute what I’ve learned over the years.

“If there is one thing I’d love to be able to do is somehow be involved in preserving that expertise.

“Somehow. Some way.”
