This man was always so kind to me. He had the best stories about legendary moments in @dodgers baseball history and the best stories about life. He had the type of personality that could light up a room — and when he spoke, you could hear a pin drop… A true 1 of 1. My


This man was always so kind to me. He had the best stories about legendary moments in @dodgers baseball history and the best stories about life. He had the type of personality that could light up a room — and when he spoke, you could hear a pin drop… A true 1 of 1. My stepdad, Paul was always a big fan and on one of his birthdays my good friend @boyfromnewyorkcity helped me surprise him with a dinner with Mr. Lasorda (he insisted I call him Tommy. I still always called him Mr. Lasorda). He shows up at my apartment in NYC and told my stepdad (who was awestruck) all the stories behind their legendary wins and losses, and his amazing career. He stayed far longer than I could ever have asked for and was so happy to be there and put a Cheshire Cat smile on my stepdad’s face. This, maybe the most, spoke to his heart and character because I’ve heard so many stories like my own about his generosity and humility. ⠀

This pic is from backstage at SNL on one of the weeks I was hosting. He wanted to come and see me rehearse and in my element and I was truly honored.⠀

A real legend and one hell of a man.⠀

I feel lucky to have shared time with you Mr. “Tommy” Lasorda. I’m sure you’re already raising a little bit of hell up there…⠀
