PLAYERS: Tommy Lasorda
Tommy Lasorda is one of baseballs most well-known global icons. In addition to leading the Dodgers to two World Series titles in the 1980s, Lasorda also managed in the Dominican Republic for three seasons in the 1970s, winning two championships and one Caribbean World Series. He is also a founding member and the goodwill ambassador of the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame, which hands out an annual award in his honor to a non-Latino who makes significant contributions to Latino baseball. What does all that add up to? One heck of a statue. The above statue was unveiled in honor of the Dodgers Hall of Fame manager on Sunday at the Paseo de los Inmortales in La Romana, Dominican Republic. As you can see, Lasorda was very pleased with it. Hats off to you, Tommy. The honor is well-deserved. Photo credit: Steve Fortunato/Fortch Unlimited
