Lasorda was admitted to the intensive care unit at a hospital in Orange County, Calif. in mid-November. He was said to have been resting comfortably at the time.
However, TMZ Sports said that Lasorda required sedation and was placed on a ventilator. The 93-year-old former Los Angeles Dodgers manager spent two weeks in the intensive care unit and then began rehab in the hospital.
