Tommy Lasorda has rounded third and is now headed home, according to TMZ. That is good news, as the legendary Los Angeles Dodgers manager had been in the hospital with heart issues for more than a month.
Lasorda, 93, reportedly spent the previous two weeks in an Orange County hospital, not long after being admitted to a Southern California facility in mid-November.
“Worth noting — we’re told the issues were NOT COVID-19 related,” TMZ reported.
Lasorda was the Dodgers’ manager from 1976-96, leading them to World Series titles in 1981 and ’88. He was named NL Manager of the Year twice (1981, ’88), and his No. 2 has been retired by the organization.
As a pitcher, Lasorda spent the 1955-56 season with the Dodgers when they were still in Brooklyn.
