La Russa To Have Eye Examined Today

Posted By on Mon, May 9, 2011 at 8:54 AM

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is still battling the bizarre eye infection we first commented on nearly three weeks ago.

The ailment does not appear to be pink eye -- as first reported -- but some mysterious virus. Today's an off day for the Cardinals, and La Russa will travel today to the Mayo Clinic in Arizona to allow doctors there to take a look.

La Russa tells the Post-Dispatch the condition is "miserable," with the eye nearly completely closed and tearing constantly. La Russa has described the eye as "like bad makeup in a horror movie."

The examination today coincides with a physical check up La Russa undergoes each year as a board member for his animal charity, ARF.

The Cardinals manager plans to rejoin the team in Chicago on Tuesday in time for its series against the Cubs.
