Tommy Lasorda reportedly had a ‘mild’ heart attack
“The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue,” Lasorda is quoted as saying in a team release. “I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers.”
Lasorda was in town to represent the Dodgers at the MLB Draft on Monday, and his absence sparked some questions. Now we know what kept him from attending.
Lasorda also suffered a heart attack in 1996, but by all appearances seemed to be in fine health since then.
