Much has been made of Tony La Russa hanging out in Tigers camp with his friend Jim Leyland, but the retired manager will soon be making an appearance in Cardinals camp as well.

Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that La Russa will be participating in a charity golf tournament next week near the Cardinals’ spring training complex and plans to stop by on March 2.

Also of note is that La Russa is scheduled to attend the Cardinals’ regular season opener against the Marlins, at the new ballpark in Miami.

Surely by then he’ll have cured Leyland of his smoking habit. Seems like a one-week project, right?

    Sounds like someone’s restless.

    Restless or just waking up from a 3 month blackout, thinking to himself oh my I’m late for work. Note to self I need to tell Albert he needs to re-sign with st louis so we can win another WS.
    Next thought: who is this stray dog I am waking up next to?

    How can you be in two places at once when you’re not anywhere at all?
