What does the guy who just led the St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series victory do next? He retires and becomes an elephant keeper. Well, not quite. He retires and gets offered a job by the Performing Animal Welfare Society to work at their elephant sanctuary.

When asked if he was getting any employment offers, the retiring manager told Letterman, “I actually got a job offer [Monday]. I swear. There’s a group called Performing Animal Welfare Society just outside of Sacramento and they offered me a job as an elephant keeper.”

You might be wondering, as I was, why Tony La Russa, a man who has spent his entire career playing and coaching in the professional baseball world, would be offered a gig working with elephants. Turns out, the guy is a vegetarian and loves animals so much that he has his own foundation!

He runs The Animal Rescue Foundation which works to “saves dogs and cats who have run out of time at public shelters and brings people and animals together to enrich each others lives. ARF strives to create a world where every loving dog and cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, and where children learn to care.”

In addition to having rescue animals of his own, La Russa fosters dogs and cats galore. Lucky critters!
