When former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this summer, he will enter with no logo on his cap. La Russa said he would have a hard time deciding between the three clubs he managed.
“The Chicago White Sox gave me my start in the game as a big league manager for my first eight seasons in my 33-year managerial career. In Oakland, we recorded four first-place finishes in 10 years, winning three pennants and a World Series. And in St. Louis, our clubs won three pennants and two titles in 16 years,” said LaRussa. “It’s the totality of the success of each of those three teams that led me to Cooperstown, so I am choosing to not feature a logo so that fans of all clubs can celebrate this honor with me.”
The Museum works with each inductee by suggesting logo options, or no logo at all.
