Dodgers: Tommy Lasorda Hospitalized With Heart Trouble

The legendary Dodgers manager is reportedly “resting comfortably” now.



TMZ Sports is reporting this morning that legendary Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda has been hospitalized. The 93-year-old former skipper was admitted to the hospital last week when his condition was reported to have taken a turn for the worse. 

TMZ Sports also reported that Lasorda was hooked up to a ventilator and had to be sedated as a result. Their latest update is that the Dodgers legend is now “resting comfortably” so it does seem as though his condition has improved since the initial report. 

The hospital visit and ventilator use are also NOT due to COVID-19, per the report. 

Lasorda retired from Major League Baseball in 1960 before becoming a scout for the Dodgers and later a manager. As a manager, Tommy led Los Angeles to two World Series titles, including one in the miracle 1988 run. Overall, he led the team to 8 National League West division titles, 4 pennants across his 21 years of managing the squad. 

Lasorda spends most of his time these days just visiting the Dodgers in Spring Training. In a regular year, he would also be spotted in his normal seat at most home games as well. He also owns a family win company called Lasorda Wines. Other than that, Tommy is essentially just retired. We wish Tommy all of the best!

  1. Tommy we are all praying for you! Saw you in spring training in Vero Beach where you were holding court on one of the practice fields. I bleed Dodger Blue just like you. I am from Bklyn living in Florida in my retirement years. Visited the Italian restaurant in Green Point Bklyn many times with your picture and-many other Dodgers on the wall. I went to Madison HS and Hodges lived right around the corner. Lived in Bensonhurst next door to the Wilpons. As you can see my Dodger connection runs through my blood! Thrilled that the won the World Series this year!

  2. Praying for you Tommy. Hang in there and let’s cheer our Dodgers on to another one in 2021. I always thought you were one of the greatest managers ever.
