Baseball Coach Tony La Russa.

Baseball manager Tony La Russa. For the past two years, he's led the Oakland Athletics to the World Series. La Russa has been called one of the most intelligent, cerebral and innovative managers now in the game. His style of clubhouse management - taping all American league games in the clubhouse so batters can study upcoming opposing pitchers, computer analysis of statistics to show which batters hit best in clutch situations - is widely imitated and has been credited with revitalizing the American League West, once thought to be the weakest of all four divisions.
