Mike Scioscia the cyclist:
Here is my story that aired yesterday on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
Mike Scioscia had a habit of gaining weight. He liked to eat. One winter he was playing the in Dominican and Al Campanis told Ralph Avila to get a stationary bicycle with an odometer, and to check it every Monday and see how many miles he was riding.
Mickey Hatcher told me he was walking by Scioscia’s apartment and he heard the wheels of the bike pumping.
“Man, Mike is really pedaling hard,” said Mickey.
He opened the door, and when he walked in he saw Scioscia lying on the couch with a pizza on his chest, and a Dominican kid was pedaling the bike!
