PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) _ St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa's drunken driving hearing was postponed until Dec. 3.

La Russa did not appear in court Monday when the hearing delay was announced. He was arrested March 22 and charged with drunken driving after police said they found him asleep inside his running sport utility vehicle at a stop light near the Cardinals' spring training facility in Jupiter.

Two breath samples registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.093 percent and 0.092 percent. Florida's legal driving limit is 0.08 percent.

La Russa later apologized. The four-time manager of the year led the Cardinals to a World Series title last season.
