Tommy Lasorda Hoping For Wednesday Release

The story of how Tommy Lasorda ended up in the hospital after a heart attack is more unusual than you might think. It took some cajoling from Bud Selig to get Lasorda checked out. From Jon Heyman:

... when commissioner Bud Selig heard him complain about not feeling well at the draft Monday night, Selig insisted Lasorda be taken for testing to a hospital near the Secaucus, N.J., studio where the draft was held. Lasorda was sent from there to New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where it was determined he had had a heart attack. A stent was implanted to relieve what was said to have been extensive blockage in one artery. Tuesday, he was back to joking.
