In honor of our Baseball exhibition, the Reagan Forum featured Major League Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and former Los Angeles Dodgers
manager Tommy Lasorda.
After a brief career as a left-handed pitcher,
Tommy Lasorda became one of the most
enthusiastic and successful managers in
baseball history. Lasorda, who has been
with the Dodgers for 65 years, led the team
to two world championships, four National
League titles and eight division titles in 20
years as manager of the team. Following
his retirement as manager, Lasorda became
a special advisor to the chairman of the
Dodgers. One of his most memorable
accomplishments was managing the United
States to its first-ever gold medal in baseball
at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
