One week ago, I was on my way to Phoenix for my annual Arizona Fall League trip and as such, I missed the late night television appearances last Monday of retired St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and third baseman David Freese. Since I had to go back and find them to view them, I thought I would share them with others, too. Sorry if the subject is old news to many.
Tony La Russa taped his spot on The Late Show with David Letterman in Manhattan on the afternoon of his retirement announcement, made in St. Louis that morning.
I found La Russa’s comment about taking things “a little personally” most interesting. A second clip follows as La Russa discusses the changing role of the bullpen.
World Series Most Valuable Player David Freese traveled west to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. This interview is also in two parts.
Freese also made a guest appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In case you missed the Country Music Awards on Wednesday evening, November 9, Freese was a co-presenter with ESPN’s Erin Andrews.
Coming soon: Entertainment Weekly reports that Freese will be a guest star on an episode of ABC’s new sitcom Work It, playing himself.
