Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
I managed Winter Ball in the Dominican Republic for many years, and I loved it. The people there love baseball and treated us so well. One night Ralph Avila and I were at dinner at a doctor’s house way up in the mountains. Somehow we got in a conversation about me and Ralph said that since we are up in the mountains nobody would recognize me.
As we were backing out of the driveway after dinner there was an old man pushing a cart through the road. He looks in the car and sees me.
“Lasorda!” he said. “Como estas mi amigo?”
