BREAKING: Hall of Fame Dodgers’ Legend Tommy Lasorda Dies At Age 93
Tommy Lasorda has died at the age of 93, the team announced on Friday.
The Hall of Fame Dodgers’ manager suffered a cardiopulmonary arrest at his home late Friday night and was rushed to a local hospital and was pronounced dead by officials.
“Words can not express my feelings,” former Mets manager Bobby Valentine tweeted. “A friend and mentor for 52 years is no longer with us. Tommy no one will ever fill the void you left. Thank you for everything. R.I.P.”
In 20 seasons as their manager (1977-96), Lasorda led the Dodgers to two world championships (1981, 1988), four National League pennants and eight division titles.
