Oakland, Calif. (AP) -- Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa has been cleared by his doctors to participate in Sunday's pregame ceremony in Oakland as the Athletics retire former pitcher Dave Stewart's No. 34 jersey.

According to the White Sox, La Russa will travel with the team back to Chicago after the series finale against the A's, but the 77-year-old Hall of Famer hasn't been cleared to return to the dugout as an active manager.
