From 1976 to 1996, Tommy Lasorda led the Dodgers to 2 World Series (1981 and 1988), 4 NL pennants and 7 division titles.
He left after a a heart attack and an angioplasty procedure the month before.
Lasorda pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954-55 but never got a decision.
As a manager, Lasorda was one of the best: 1599 wins. He was the NL Manager of the Year in 1983 and 1988. In 2000, a retired Lasorda led the USA baseball team to a gold medal.
A wonderful baseball man, one of the greatest ambassadors of the game ever!
