Tommy Lasorda was a big fan of Frank Sinatra. ABC7's Rob Fukuzaki rewrote the lyrics to "Summer Wind" in 1997 as a gift and tribute to the legendary skipper.


LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hall of Fame Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda has died, the team announced Friday. He was 93.


Lasorda, who spent seven decades in the Dodgers organization, suffering a sudden heart attack at his home Thursday evening, according to a statement. Resuscitation attempts were made on the way to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly before 11 p.m.


Lasorda had a history of heart problems, including a heart attack in 1996 that ended his managerial career and another in 2012 that required him to have a pacemaker.


"He was a great ambassador for the team and baseball, a mentor to players and coaches, he always had time for an autograph and a story for his many fans and he was a good friend," said Dodgers owner and chairman Mark Walter. "He will be dearly missed."

Lasorda had a record of 1,599-1,439 while managing the Dodgers from 1976-96, guiding them to World Series championships in 1981 and '88. The franchise won four National League pennants and eight division titles under Lasorda.

Vin Scully, a fellow Dodgers icon, said there were "two things about Tommy I will always remember. The first is his boundless enthusiasm. Tommy would get up in the morning full of beans and maintain that as long as he was with anybody else.
