Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda died in his home at the age of 93. He managed the Dodgers from 1976 to 1996, winning two World Series titles, four National League pennants and eight division crowns. He was named NL Manager of the Year twice and won 1,599 career games.

In this Oct. 3, 1983, file photo, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda starts a team meeting in the clubhouse at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. San Diego Padres infielder Kurt Bevacqua learned the hard way when he suggested the "fat little Italian" should have been fined when Dodgers reliever Tom Niedenfuer was dinged by MLB for throwing at San Diego's Joe Lefebvre in 1983. An ordinary pitcher during his brief stint in the majors, Lasorda took a shot at Bevacqua's struggles at the plate (he was a .236 hitter) saying he would "send a limousine" to pick Bevacqua up to make sure Bevacqua was in the lineup so he could "kick" Bevacqua's (behind) any day of the week.
