Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, a member of the Hall of Fame, has been hospitalized, the team said in a statement Sunday.
Lasorda, 93, was admitted to a hospital in Orange County, east of Los Angeles, and was resting comfortably in intensive care, the statement said.
“The family appreciates everyone’s thoughts and prayers; however, they request their privacy at this time,” the statement said.
