Tommy Lasorda released from NY hospital
NEW YORK (KABC) -- Tommy Lasorda has been released from a New York hospital, three days after suffering a heart attack.
The longtime Dodger will likely stay in New York for a couple days to recuperate before heading home to Los Angeles.
Tommy Lasorda was taken to Columbia Presbyterian in New York, where doctors inserted a stent to correct a blocked artery in Lasorda's heart.
Lasorda was in New York for the MLB amateur draft. Lasorda has worked in the team's front office since his retirement and has been a constant presence around the Dodgers.
Lasorda had a heart attack in June 1996 while he was the Dodgers' manager and retired the next month. He guided the Dodgers to 1,599 victories and won the World Series in 1981 and 1988, the team's last two titles.
