Hall of Fame former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda remains hospitalized in Orange County, though he has been moved out of intensive care, per a report from the Associated Press:

Los Angeles Dodgers spokesman Steve Brener said Tuesday that the team’s 93-year-old former manager is doing rehab at the hospital in Orange County. Lasorda has been hospitalized since Nov. 8, although the team didn’t make it public until a week later.

It’s been nearly four weeks in the hospital for Lasorda, who was with the Dodgers watching their World Series win in Arlington, Texas on Oct. 27. The Dodgers announced that he was hospitalized on Nov. 15, a week after Lasorda was admitted.
