Tommy Lasorda has infection
LOS ANGELES -- Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda is recovering from a bacterial infection that caused the 83-year-old to be hospitalized.
Team spokesman Josh Rawitch says Lasorda was resting at home Monday. He spent four days in the hospital last week.
Lasorda currently serves as a special adviser to Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. He retired as manager in 1996 after having a heart attack. Lasorda's 20-year managerial tenure with the Dodgers included World Series titles in 1981 and '88.
