No, he didn’t get into a fight, but he sure looks like he did. St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa is suffering from conjunctivitis, or pinkeye. His right eye is almost swollen shut and his face and forehead are swollen and discolored.
He’s been fighting the condition for a couple of weeks. It looks like he’s losing the battle at the moment.
The rumor that Mrs. LaRussa told him to “Shut up”, but he thought she said “Stand up”, could not be confirmed. So it remains that – just a rumor..
