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 Draft.
Lasorda, 84, was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center for treatment, where doctors inserted a stent to correct a blocked artery in his heart.
Despite the scare, the charismatic Lasorda still had his trademark sense of humor in vintage form, proclaiming that “the doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue. I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers.”
Lasorda is now resting comfortably and in stable condition.
