Default Tommy Lasorda's birthday

Tommy Lasorda turns 92 today. Here's a picture from the Dodger press box where I sat for 23 years. A little embarrassed to admit that I still have that tie.

We used to talk about the 1988 club a lot and he wrote the letter to me 17 years ago to the day, on his 75th birthday.

Can't believe it's been that long since they won it all.

If you'd like to see more autographs, check out my website CooperstownExpert.com

The folks I was lucky enough to meet through baseball sure helped the collection.

Thanks for looking.

Awesome piece! I was able to purchase Lasorda's personal collection of lineup cards from the last 10 years of his career. All-time great manager.

Awesome, Jim! I was living in So Cal during the 1988 season & I remember clearly following the Dodgers all the way to winning the World Series.
It's strange how I really had a strong opinion that they were, in fact, a team of destiny. Talent, team chemistry & strong leadership provided by Tommy Lasorda. I loved that team!

I will also never forget the role that Mickey Hatcher played that year.
Talking about a career year, he came up big so many different times...
