Hall of Fame manager and Los Angeles Dodger icon Tommy Lasorda dies at 93


Tommy Lasorda, the charismatic former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers who maintained a relationship with the franchise as a player, coach, manager and executive for 71 seasons, has died at the age of 93.


Lasorda posted a career record of 1,599-1,439 (.526) as the Dodgers' manager from 1976 to 1996. During that span, his teams won eight division titles, four National League pennants and two World Series championships. 


Four years after his retirement as a major league skipper, Lasorda returned to the dugout as the manager of the 2000 United States Olympic baseball team, leading them to the gold medal at the Summer Games in Sydney, Australia.
