Are you ready to watch the St. Louis Cardinals win game two of the World Series tonight?!  If you watched last night’s game you probably know that pinch hitter Allen Craig drove in what was to be the winning run in the bottom of the sixth, after being sent to bat by Cards manager Tony LaRussa. But, did you know that in addition to being a remarkable manager of his team and one of only two in Major League history to have won a World Series in the American and National League, Tony LaRussa is a 1978 graduate of Florida State University’s School of Law?   LaRussa passed the Florida Bar in 1979, making him one of only five lawyer/managers in baseball history.
