Tommy and His Statue

Tommy Lasorda now has his very own statue at the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame in the Dominican Republic.
The Latino Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday unveiled a statue of Dodger Hall of Fame Manager and Special Advisor to the Chairman Tommy Lasorda at their Paseo de los Inmortales in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Lasorda, who is a founding member of the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame and their Goodwill Ambassador, managed in the Dominican Republic for three seasons, winning two championships and one Caribbean Series championship (1973-74)

The Latino Baseball Hall of Fame annually bestows the Tommy Lasorda Award for a non-Latino who makes significant contributions to Latino baseball. This year's winner is Pat Gillick with past winners including Peter O'Malley (2010) and George Steinbrenner (2011).
