Detailed Biography of Tommy Lasorda
One of the most famous managers in the history of the sport of baseball is undoubtedly Tommy Lasorda, who has had six solid decades of association with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Los Angeles Dodgers first as a player and subsequently as a manager.
Born in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Tommy Lasorda appearances on the baseball diamond as a player were not altogether successful, although he did play Major League Baseball for nearly three years. The first and final Tommy Lasorda appearances as a player in Major League Baseball took place while he was on the roster of the Brooklyn Dodgers. During the years in between, Tommy Lasorda appearances as a pitcher also came for the Kansas City Athletics.
After leaving pitching behind for managing, Tommy Lasorda appearances in baseball began heralding success. From 1976 to 1996, Tommy Lasorda appearances in the dugout as the manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers took place. During that time, Tommy Lasorda helped lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the World Series Championship twice, first during 1981 and second during 1988. Because of his success with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Tommy Lasorda appearances came when his number two jersey was retired by the team and when he twice won the National League Manager of the Year Award.
One memorable Tommy Lasorda endorsement during his career came when he served as the spokesperson for the Slim Fast line of weight loss shakes as well as in advertisements for Rolaids antacids.
