Terribly Awesome Baseball Card: Tommy Lasorda

By September 25, 2014June 18th, 2018No Comments

TOMMY-LASORDA-CARDDon’t let that smile fool you. Tommy Lasorda was a loveable mob boss of a manager that wouldn’t hesitate to tear reporters a new asshole with language that would leave broadcasters scrambling for the delay button. Lasorda is eighty-seven years old and in his sixth decade with the Dodgers, first as a manager and later as an executive. Lasorda is a Hall of Famer with two championships, but his post-game tirades were even more prolific than his career. This one about Kurt Bevacqua and this one about Dave Kingman are on par with the rants of Bobby Knight, Jim Mora, Mike Gundy, and Dennis Green.
