A Tommy Lasorda High School Yearbook

When I saw this on eBay I knew I had to share it here.

Above is a team photo of a Baseball team from Norristown High School in Pennsylvania, and featured within the egg-shaped blue circle is a youthful Tommy Lasorda.  It is from 1944, and Tommy was probably 16 or 17 at the time. 

As you may know, Lasorda originally signed as an amateur free agent just prior to the start of the 1945 season with the Philadelphia Phillies.  He was then taken by the Dodgers in the 1948 minor league draft.

Over the past several years I've highlighted school yearbooks for a number of former Dodgers; including Clayton Kershaw, Sandy Koufax, Jackie Robinson and sports cartoonist Willard Mullin.  Go here to check out those past blog post.
