It was reported last Saturday that Lasorda, 89, had been hospitalized in intensive care, though few details about his condition were known.

Lasorda managed the Dodgers from 1976-1996, winning four NL pennants (1977, 1978, 1981, 1988) and two World Series titles (1981, 1988). He compiled a 1,599-1,439 record in that span and earned NL Manager of the Year honors in 1983 and 1988.

We wish him a speedy recovery.
