Tony LaRussa who is currently in the midst of his 13th season with the St. Louis Cardinals spent Monday visiting the West Point campus. He was the special guest of West Point Superintendent Buster L. Hagenbeck. He ended up touring the historic campus in upstate New York before finishing up the trip by checking out the Softball and Baseball facilities. He took some time to talk with the current Army players to give them some advice and encouragement during their fall workouts. Army Media Relations has a great article on the visit which is available by clicking here.
