La Russa picked as All-Star coach

Thursday, June 18, 2009

NEW YORK -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa will join Dodgers manager Joe Torre as an NL coach for next month's All-Star game in St. Louis.

Torre said last month he had been selected by Philadelphia's Charlie Manuel, the NL manager.

AL manager Joe Maddon of Tampa Bay picked Kansas City's Trey Hillman and Seattle's Don Wakamatsu as his coaches, the commissioner's office said Wednesday.

The game is July 14.
