LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Tony La Russa says he’s talked to Commissioner Bud Selig about working for Major League Baseball in some capacity.

La Russa, who retired as a manager after guiding the St. Louis Cardinals to the World Series title last year, was visiting with the Detroit Tigers at spring training Tuesday. La Russa is good friends with Tigers manager Jim Leyland and has a longstanding relationship with general manager Dave Dombrowski.

La Russa was vague when talking about what he might do for MLB but said he would not be taking Joe Torre’s old job as executive vice president of baseball operations.

He said he’d be working with Selig but he’s “not sure how official the commissioner wants to make it.”
