SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— We tried to get freshly elected baseball Hall of Famer Tony La Russa on with us Monday to congratulate him, but he was too busy. So, better late than never, John Madden’s neighbor and friend joined us a day late.
La Russa told Madden he was at Major League Baseball’s winter meetings in Orlando.
“I was thinking I was going to call you to congratulate you…does this count?” Madden said during the radio segment. “When a man goes into the Hall of Fame you owe a man at least a call.”
He wasn’t sure if the radio segment counted.
“Since you asked my opinion John, I prefer that you take me to lunch,” replied La Russa.
