MLB: After 1st-half tumult, All-Stars pull into KC

< Previous Page

And while the Rangers’ Ron Washington will be in the AL dugout for the second straight season, following a 5-1 loss last year in Phoenix, Tony La Russa will be running the NL. The retired manager of the World Series champion Cardinals will be the fourth inactive skipper in All-Star history, the first since the AL’s Bob Lemon after he was fired by George Steinbrenner in 1979.

"I think it’s one of the best experiences you can have," La Russa said. "As soon as I was asked, I said yes before the question was finished."
