The former Dodgers manager is recovering in a New York hospital. He is expected to be released on Wednesday, TMZ reports. He was in New York as part of the Dodgers delegation to the annual players draft.
Statement from the team:
Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda suffered a mild heart attack Monday while in New York for the Major League Baseball 2012 First-Year Player Draft. Lasorda, 84, was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center for treatment. Doctors inserted a stent to correct a blocked artery in Lasorda’s heart. He is resting comfortably and in stable condition. “The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue,” Lasorda joked. “I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers.”
