My Retirement

On July 29, 1996, I officially announced my retirement as Manager of the Dodgers.  It was a tough decision because I loved every second of my time in the dugout, but it was the right one. 

There was a tremendous outpoor of love towards me, which I will always appreicate.  Here is a letter that Kirk Gibson wrote to me shortly after the announcement:

Hey Tommy! Wondering if you did any scouting before/after your retirement. I’m working on a book that involves a Dodgers scout named Sylvester Syl Johnson. Do you have any memory or info on this old timer? Respectfully, MC
