This week on Sports With Friends:

On January 7, 2021, Dodgers hall of fame manager, Tommy Lasorda died at the age of 93. This episode pays tribute to the iconic manager. Joined by former Dodgers general manager Fred Claire, former Dodgers VP Communications Gary Miereanu, and longtime Dodgers reporter, employee, and MLB reporter Ben Platt.

Lasorda managed the Dodgers from 1976-1996, winning two World Series championships in 1981 and 1988. He was the “Dugout Wizard” on The Baseball Bunch and an MLB ambassador for years.

The episode also features his classic “Dave Kingman rant” to reporter Paul Olden, and an MLB Radio commercial Lasorda did in 2004.

The Ben Platt on this show is not the Broadway actor, although we will tag him on Twitter.
