Tommy Lasorda Hospitalized

LOS ANGELES (EON) – Tommy Lasorda, former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Hall of Famer, was hospitalized, the team said.

The Dodgers said the 89-year-old Lasorda rests comfortably and did not release details on Saturday about his health condition.

TMZ reported earlier Saturday that Lasorda was recovering from an infection.

The Orange County Register reported Lasorda has been in the hospital for several days.

Lasorda has spent almost seven decades in the Dodgers’ organization, where he started as a minor league pitcher in the Brooklyn system in 1949. He served as a pitcher, coach and manager with the Dodgers, which led to his last title World Series in 1988.

Lasorda made a prominent public appearance May 3, helping to unveil Vin Scully’s retired microphone at Dodger Stadium.
