PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda was released from a New York hospital Thursday morning, three days after suffering a mild heart attack.
A Dodgers spokesman said Thursday in Philadelphia that no further update was available, adding only that the 84-year-old Lasorda will spend a few more days at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, where a stent was inserted to clear a blocked artery.
He was representing the Dodgers at the Major League Baseball draft.
He is in his sixth decade working for the Dodgers organization, starting out as a pitcher when the team was still in Brooklyn.
He guided the Dodgers to 1,599 victories and won the World Series in 1981 and 1988, the team’s past two titles. Lasorda retired as manager in 1996 after suffering a heart attack.
