The memory of Tommy Lasorda will forever live on with the Dodgers. To honor the passing of the Hall of Fame manager, the team will do a few things tonight. One of those things is lowering the flags at the stadium to half staff.
The Dodgers will also light up Dodger Stadium to illuminate a large number 2 that has been painted in center field. Lasorda wore number 2 throughout his managerial career with the team. Flowers will also be placed at Lasorda’s #2 monument in the retired numbers plaza at the top of the park. Lasorda’s seat by the dugout will be marked with his jersey as well as his two Manager of the Year awards.
