Tommy Lasorda suffers mild heart attack; resting in a New York hospital

Lasorda awoke to a busy Monday feeling under the weather. He helped ring the opening bell at the NASDAQ exchange and later bused from his hotel to the MLB Network studios in Secaucus, N.J. for the amateur draft, where he would represent the Dodgers. Friends noted Lasorda lacked his usual energy and, indeed, had broken into a sweat during the bus ride.

At others' urging, Lasorda rested in a conference room at the television studio. Paramedics were summoned after a short period. When Lasorda showed high blood pressure, his cardiologist – Dr. Tony Reid – was notified. (Lasorda suffered a heart attack in 1996, when he was forced to step down in his 21st season as Dodgers manager. A pacemaker was implanted last summer.)

.......

An iconic figure in Los Angeles, Lasorda won 1,599 games and two World Series championships in 21 seasons as Dodgers manager. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997.

"The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue," Lasorda said in a statement released by the club. "I'm looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers."

Get well soon Tommy.

    • I am not talking about the cost of a team moving, I am talking about the vote itself.  While 50 million isn't a lot of money in NFL land, its still two million or so to each owner for doing nothing.  These moves impact the entire league, and each vote should be cast objectively, with owners thinking about what is best for the league. 
    • So, #15 re: not being allowed to "conserve time" after the 2 minute warning, was approved.  That one really needs explanation...  So far I've not seen any write up about what that one means.
    • 3 months in on the whole foods plant based diet. No animal products for the past three months. Processed food kept at a minimum.

      Imagine what a drug company would charge if they had a magic pill that could do all of this in three months. It would instantly be the most prescribed pill in the nation.
       
      Yet, anyone can do it and actually save money from a less expensive eating plan.
