Lasorda turned 93 back in September. He was in Arlington last month to witness the Dodgers win the World Series in person, so talk about amazing timing that he was healthy enough to finally see them win it all in person.
Lasorda was the Dodgers manager from 1976 to 1996, winning two World Series titles in 1981 and 1988. During his time as manager, the Dodgers won four National League pennants and eight division titles.
In June 1996, Lasorda had a heart attack and retired from managing the Dodgers the next month. Since then, he has remained with the organization as a special adviser to the chairman.
We here at TBLA and every baseball fan in the world are sending our best wishes to Lasorda and his family. This post will be updated when new information is released.
