White Sox announce Hall of Famer Tony La Russa as new manager

30 Octobre, 2020, 02:05 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Tony La Russa has not managed in almost a decade, but the Hall of Famer is officially making a comeback.

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, disc jockey Lin Brehmer shared the news on WXRT (93.3 FM) in Chicago that the White Sox had hired Tony La Russa as manager.

The White Sox at least had it fixed when they tweeted out the La Russa announcement, this time with the correct signature. The 76-year-old has not managed a major-league team since retiring after winning the 2011 World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

UK Labour suspends ex-leader Corbyn after anti-Semitism report
Starmer, elected in April, has vowed to stamp out prejudice and restore relations between the party and the Jewish community. Starmer, who has vowed to root out anti-Semitism, said the report marked a "day of shame" for the party.

Hinch and Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow were both hit with one-year suspensions by MLB and fired by the Astros in the fallout of the cheating scandal that rocked the baseball world last offseason.

Since leaving the dugout, he has worked in front offices of the Arizona Diamondbacks (2014-17), Boston Red Sox (2018-19) and most recently the Los Angeles Angels, where he was a senior adviser.

While this might be a harmless error of graphic design, it stands to reason that Hinch's signature would not have been in the White Sox's system had he not been a serious candidate. Emailed daily. Always free!
