RIP The Godfather

Tommy Lasorda, 93

Was there anyone that did not like the guy?  even though he was a Dodger.

Too bad.  Hopefully he was able to have family around him.

His son Tom Jr. died of AIDS in 1991.  His father never accepted his homosexuality so yes there was someone who didn't particularly like Tommy Lasorda.

Lasorda wasn't the first baseball man to curse a lot, he was just the first to elevate it to art.
