Tommy Lasorda was a legendary baseball figure who will be greatly missed. Here he is offering batting instructions to my son Jack who, two weeks later, quit little league. #RIPTommyLasorda
@TheCousinSal This is your best parent corner yet but a great story nonetheless!
@TheCousinSal As a Giants fan, I hate the Dodgers. But, Tommy Lasorda was one of the genuinely nicest guys ever and a great manager!! He will be missed!
@TheCousinSal 87 year old Tommy signing a printout of an eBay listing of a $1.25 Mickey Hatcher rookie card. Tommy looked at and signed this ridiculous item (which is framed in my classroom) and said "He grew up here in Phoenix. And then went to college in Oklahoma". Sharp as a tack! RIP
@TheCousinSal He was the guest of honor at my local little league opening day a few years back. His speech offended half the folks there. It was great.
