    DescriptionAfter thirty-three seasons managing in Major League Baseball, Tony La Russa thought he had seen it all--until the 2011 Cardinals. Down ten and a half games with little more than a month to play, the Cardinals had long been ruled out as serious postseason contenders. Yet in the face of those steep odds, this team mounted one of the most dramatic and impressive comebacks in baseball history, making the playoffs on the night of the final game of the season and going on to win the World Series despite being down to their last strike--twice.Now La Russa gives the inside story behind this astonishing comeback and his extraordinary career. One Last Strike is a passionate, insightful look at our national pastime that takes you behind the scenes of the comeback no one thought possible and inside the mind of one of the game's greatest managers.
