With the White Sox victory today, manager Tony La Russa inches closer and closer to a major managerial milestone. At the ripe age of 76, La Russa is now 14 wins away from being the second winningest manager in MLB history.
Once the White Sox manager passes John McGraw, La Russa will only trail Connie Mack, who had 3,731 career wins. Becoming the winningest MLB coach of all-time may not be in the cards for Tony La Russa, but his wins reflect his great and lengthy Hall of Fame career.
La Russa spent nine years with the White Sox, ten years with the Athletics, and 16 seasons with the Cardinals before retiring. This year, La Russa made his return and still has it.
