La Russa on the make-up of a good hitting coach

JUPITER, Fla. (KMOV) - Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is entering his 31st season as a Major League manager.

Through the years, he's worked with hitting coaches ranging from the legendary Charlie Lau - who La Russa says is the best of all time - to newcomer Mark McGwire.

In this video that was recorded during the early portions of spring training, La Russa talks about what makes a great hitting coach, and how coaches nowadays have much more on their plate than those of yesteryears.
