Los Angeles Dodgers And MLB Community Mourning ‘Passing Of Tommy Lasorda’ And ‘Passing Of Sandi Scully, The Loving Wife Of Vin’
The Los Angeles Dodgers released a statement that “Hall of Fame Dodgers’ manager Tommy Lasorda, who spent seven decades in the Dodger organization and became one of the most memorable personalities in baseball history, passed away Thursday night (January 7)…he was 93.”
Lasorda was a two-time manager of the year and was the Dodgers’ skipper from 1976 to 1996. That’s two decades.
The Hall of Fame manager was a four-time National League pennant winner and two-time World Series winner as the Dodgers’ manager.
According to Dodger Blue, Vin Scully narrates Lasorda’s obituary:
The City of Los Angeles and the Dodgers have been paying their respects to Lasorda:
The MLB community and many more people are also mourning the loss of the beloved Lasorda, remembering the long-time Dodgers manager:
On top of mourning the loss of Lasorda, the Dodger community is also remembering the life of Vin Scully’s wife as the Dodgers released this statement: “We are saddened to learn of the passing of Sandi Scully, the loving wife of Vin and a dear member of the Dodger family. Sandi was Vin’s biggest fan and was always there in loving support of him at Dodger Stadium until she began her battle with ALS. She was truly Vin’s and the Scully family’s rock, and she will be dearly missed.”
According to MLB.com, “the Scully family has asked that donations be made to the Department of Neuromuscular Disease at UCLA/ALS Research in Sandra Scully’s name”. If you’d like to donate in honor of Scully, you can do so here.
Vin’s Wife, Sandra Scully, is being remembered by many:
