Our own Rachel Lippmann had a story on the retirement of Cardinals manager Tony La Russa on today's Morning Edition on NPR. Here's the summary provided by NPR of her work:

"After 16 seasons, the Tony La Russa era in St. Louis is over. The Cardinals announced that their skipper has decided to retire. La Russa took the Cardinals to the playoffs nine times, made it to the World Series three times and won it all twice, including this season. Now, the organization and its fans have to figure out how to move on without the man who has become their backbone. St. Louis Public Radio's Rachel Lippmann reports."
