Hall of Fame baseball manager Tommy Lasorda has died, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Friday. He was 93.
Lasorda was in the hospital battling health issues in November. TMZ Sports reported at the time that Lasorda was on a ventilator and was sedated. However, things appeared to be looking up. The Dodgers said earlier this week that Lasorda returned home and was resting comfortably.
“There are 3 types of baseball players: those who make it happen, those who watch it happen and those who wonder what happens.”
