Tommy Lasorda was a Major League baseball player and manager. In 1999 he marked his 50th year of involvement, in one capacity or another, with the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers organization, the longest tenure of any individual in the Dodgers baseball organization.
Lasorda became Los Angeles's manager in 1976 and led the team to consecutive National League championships in 1977 and 1978. Over 20 years at the helm of the Dodgers, he also led the team to two World Series championships (1981 and 1988).
His final game was a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros, at Dodger Stadium (att. 35,467), on 23 June 1996. The following day (24 June) he drove himself to the hospital complaining of abdominal pains, in fact he was having a heart attack. He officially retired on 29 July, having compiled a 1599-1439 record as a manager. At the time of his retirement, his 1599 career wins ranked 15th all-time in MLB history.
After retiring, Lasorda became an executive with the Dodgers. Lasorda was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997 as a manager. He was the manager of the gold medal United States Olympic team in 2000. Lasorda is the godfather to former major league All-Star catcher Mike Piazza (also from Norristown). Tommy Lasorda and his wife presently live in California.
He has been the manager for numerous Dodger greats including Steve Garvey, Orel Hershiser and Kirk Gibson. Tommy Lasorda has been one of the most requested and popular baseball motivational speakers for generations. His knowledge of the game, understanding of what it takes to build winning teams, and his humorous stories have made him a corporate speaking engagement darling for decades.
