SJ - January 8, 2021

Former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda died on Thursday night at the age of 93.  The legend suffered a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest and was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Lasorda's death comes just a couple of months after a trip to the hospital back in November where he was placed on a ventilator.

From TMZ Sports:

The Dodgers released a statement Friday morning ... saying Lasorda suffered a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest at his California home and was transported to hospital with resuscitation in progress.

He was pronounced dead at 10:57 PM Thursday night.

As we previously reported, Lasorda was admitted to a Southern California hospital back in mid-November in "serious condition" ... and required sedation. He was also put on a ventilator.

But, Tommy's condition improved over the past few weeks ... and just a few days ago, he returned home.

Though, tragically, Lasorda passed on Thursday.

It's a sad day for his family, friends and the Dodgers organization.  On the bright side he lived long enough to see the Dodgers win another World Series and went out a champion!

RIP Tommy Lasorda!
