Dodgers to Honor Tommy Lasorda at Dodger Stadium Tonight

The stadium will be lit up for Tommy, and flags will be lowered.



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. 

Lasorda passed away on Thursday night from an apparent heart attack. Tommy had been battling heart troubles for a very long time, but most recently had ben hospitalized in the ICU following the Dodgers World Series win. He was 93 years old and spent over 70 years with the organization.
