Los Angeles honours Tommy Lasorda as Dodgers enter NLCS

October 13, 2017 - 11:13 AM

LOS ANGELES - As the Dodgers head into Game 1 of the NL Championship Series, the Los Angeles City Council has honoured former manager Tommy Lasorda with a celebration of his recent 90th birthday.

Council members praised Lasorda during Friday's meeting and presented him a certificate of appreciation.

Lasorda said he feels like he was born in Los Angeles and thinks of himself as a real Angeleno.

He closed by saying, "Thank you for the honour and may God bless each and every one of you — and if the Dodgers don't win this time I think I'm going to kill myself!"

The chamber erupted in laughter and applause.

The Dodgers face the Chicago Cubs at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night.
