St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa declined an invitation today to attend a political rally organized by former major league infielder and current Braves first base coach Glenn Hubbard. "I have heard the stories about Glenn and that's not something I want to be a part of," said LaRussa. "The divisive rhetoric, the racial overtones, the misleading information, revisionist history and dubious conspiracy theories. He may claim his rally won't be political, and it very well may not be, but I don't want to be associated with someone like that." The Cardinals' traveling secretary later apologized to LaRussa for confusing his invitation to a Glenn Beck rally with an invite from Hubbard to grab a beer.
