One of the good ones.

Saw him a couple of times when he was MCing the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Hernando Florida.

He was no-stop hysterical!

He truly bled Dodger Blue.

RIP.

I loved Tommy Lasorda. Animated, profane funny guy & great manager!

If you have never heard Tommy's rant about Kurt Bavacqua on YouTube, you owe it to yourself to listed to it. Classic Tommy Lasorda.

Tommy loved to tell everyone that he was the player that they sent down to the minors to put some guy named Sandy Koufax on the roster.

RIP Tommy, you will be missed!

I met Tommy at a Dodgers Fantasy Camp back in the 90's, and have a photo of him and I together in the locker room. I had it displayed for a while in our family room until my daughter commented: Dad, you know there is a guy in the background naked, right? I just saw Tommy and me, never noticed anyone else in the picture.
So, some guy at the camp is wearing RED baseball cleats, and everywhere he went all week Tommy was yelling at him to get those ugly things off. I can't actually post the real language Tommy used, but you can imagine.

RIP Tommy

One of the game's most colorful characters. Had quite a run in Dodger blue. RIP
