RIP Tommy Lasorda

#1 Post by Vandal » Fri Jan 08, 2021 11:17 am

Hall of Fame manager and Los Angeles Dodger icon Tommy Lasorda dies at 93

Tommy Lasorda, the charismatic former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers who maintained a relationship with the franchise as a player, coach, manager and executive for 71 seasons, has died at the age of 93.

"I'll never want to take off this uniform,'' Lasorda told USA TODAY Sports in a 2014 interview. "I want to keep working for the Dodgers until the day I die. That's the truth."

And that's exactly what he did.

Lasorda suffered a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest at his home at 10:09 p.m. on Thursday. He was transported to the hospital with resuscitation in progress. He was pronounced dead at 10:57 p.m.

Sorry to hear this.

Even as an Astros fan, I have to admit that it was hard not to like him.

If there was ever anyone who was truly the "face of the franchise", it had to be Tommy Lasorda of the Dodgers.
I felt the change

Time meant nothing and never would again
