Dodgers: A Very Encouraging Update on Tommy Lasorda
Dodgers fans have been anxiously waiting for an update on Tommy Lasorda since the legendary manager ended up in the ICU in early November. The last update we got was through a conversation with Fred Claire when we talked with him last week. Fred had said Tommy was doing well but was still in the hospital.
The latest update on the former Dodgers manager is very good. Tommy is expected to be released from the hospital on December 23, just in time for Christmas. Tommy had been out of the Intensive Care Unit since Thanksgiving and reportedly has kept improving since then from his heart trouble.
Tommy Lasorda is said to be doing much better and hoping to be home for Christmas. December 23 is the target date for release from the hospital to be exact. He got out of the ICU Thanksgiving and continues to improve. It was touch and go for a while. But he is an alltime fighter!

Dodgers: Mookie Betts Named Sports Illustrated Player of the Year
Tommy was a big rah rah positive influence to the press and the outside world regarding our Dodgers. He was a great manager and he DID sometimes rub players the wrong way; but it was all about winning the game. Hope he gets 100% and lives to see the century mark.
Good to hear Tommy is doing better. He still has work to do because he chooses to keep being involved in his passion for the love of Baseball
He was a great Dodger manager and got the most out of his players God bless Tommy.
We love you Tommy. Give ’em hell and get out of there soon. We need you with us for the repeat next year.
