Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda has been released from the hospital and is now recuperating at home, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Tuesday.
The 93-year-old Lasorda, who is a Dodgers' icon, had been hospitalized for nearly two months. The Dodgers haven't released the reason for his hospital stay.
Lasorda was initially hospitalized on Nov. 8 and later spent a couple weeks in intensive care.
TMZ Sports reported in mid-November that Lasorda has a heart condition and that his hospitalization was not due to COVID-19. Lasorda had a heart attack in June 1996 and retired from managing a month later.
Lasorda reportedly attended the Dodgers' clinching Game 6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Oct. 27 that wrapped up the franchise's first World Series title since 1988.
Lasorda compiled a 1,599-1,439-2 record in 3,040 games over 20-plus seasons (1976-96) as the Dodgers' manager.
Lasorda's Dodgers won the National League championship in 1977 and 1978 in his first two full seasons but lost both World Series to the New York Yankees. Lasorda's teams won the World Series in 1981 and 1988, and won eight division titles.
He was the National League Manager of the Year twice (1983, 1988) and managed four All-Star teams.
Lasorda was enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997.
