Hall of Fame Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda is back home and resting comfortably after a long hospital stay, the team announced on Monday.

Lasorda was first hospitalized in Orange County on November 8 for “heart issues” per the Associated Press, was in intensive care for over three weeks, and spent December rehabbing. His total hospital stay lasted about eight weeks.

Lasorda had heart attacks in 1996, which caused him to retire in the middle of his 20th season as Dodgers manager, and in 2012 after representing the team at the MLB Draft in New York.

The 93-year-old Lasorda was at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas for Game 6 of the World Series, watching the Dodgers win their first championship in 32 years.
