Regarded by many as baseball’s most popular ambassador, Tommy Lasorda is in his 66th season in the Dodger organization and 8th as Special Advisor to the Chairman. He compiled a 1,599-1,439 record and won two World Championships, four National League pennants and eight division titles in an extraordinary 20-year career as the Dodgers’ manager. In 1997, Lasorda was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Lasorda’s uniform, Number (2), was retired by the Dodgers and the main street that leads to the entrance of Dodgertown in Vero Beach, FL was renamed Tommy Lasorda Lane. Lasorda also sits on the board of the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island Foundation and the U.S. Army Recruiting Advisory Council. He has received honorary doctorate degrees from many universities and was honored by Cal Tech when he became only the second person to ever have an asteroid named after them, #6128, otherwise known as Asteroid Lasorda. Many of Lasorda’s greatest accomplishments and stories have been compiled in “I Live For This,” his autobiography, that came out three seasons ago, which he co-wrote with Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke. His first book, “The Artful Dodger,” was released in 1986.
