Lasorda, Tommy; Los Angeles Dodgers (Baseball team)
In a week in which I could choose to talk of Ben Hogan or Don Shula, I find myself compelled towards one of the best known men in baseball over the past twenty years, Tommy Lasorda, who will be inducted into the manager's wing at Cooperstown on Sunday. Nellie Fox, Phil Niekro, and Willie Wells will also be honored. The fourteenth manager and the fifteenth Dodger honored, this man, who has been considered one of baseball's great ambassadors over the past twenty years, is an overwhelming fan's choice for a spot at Cooperstown.
