Tommy Lasorda reportedly had a ‘mild’ heart attack

84-year-old Tommy Lasorda reportedly is in a hospital in New York after suffering a heart attack on Monday.

TMZ says the heart attack was “mild,” and that the former Dodgers manager is expected to be released from the hospital on Wednesday. He’s in stable condition, and maintained his sense of humor.

“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.
