Tommy Lasorda death: Former Dodgers manager dies at 93 - Sports Illustrated

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.”   —   John E. Southard

(So very little on the author of this marvelous, positive quote!  He’s either a gentleman who was born in 1944 and died in 2004, a man who was born in 1945 and died in 1994, or a guy who was born in 1893 and died ? . . . sometime.  Or, he could have been – maybe still is – anyone else!  Any way, we should all strive to let go of all the hurts and slights of our lives, and concentrate on giving back to those who have been good to us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I read a little while ago of Tommy Lasorda’s passing.  I wouldn’t have been surprised had today’s quote come from Tommy.  I was never a Dodgers’ fan, but I definitely think he was good for the game of baseball.  A seemingly great guy, who took a chance on a kid named Mike Piazza!  As a Mets fan, I’ll always be thankful for that.     YUR

Talking about your troubles is no good.  Eighty percent of your friends don’t care and the rest are glad.”   —   Tommy Lasorda

(I’m sure that ol’ Tommy was just kidding, folks!  He’s actually a very upbeat kind of guy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There are three types of baseball players:  those who make it happen, those who watch it happen and those who wonder what happens.”   –—   Tommy Lasorda

(That Tommy can be pretty insightful.  This can also apply to people in general.  Of course, those don’t necessarily have to be absolute types.  You can be a little bit one and a little bit another.  Unfortunately, I’m kind of more watch and wonder!  It’s always better if you can make it happen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —  YUR

The only angels in Los Angeles are in heaven, and they’re looking down on the Dodgers.”   —   Tommy Lasorda

(I’m guessing that was a shot at the California/Los Angeles Angels . . . of Anaheim.  LA is Dodger-town!  I can’t imagine there are that many Angels’ fans in LA, but LA is SO vast.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When we lose I eat.  When we win I eat.  I also eat when we’re rained out.”   —   Tommy Lasorda

(If there is ever an American icon, of my generation, it’s Tommy Lasorda!  Such a great baseball character!  For me, baseball will always be Joe Garagiola, Ralph Kiner, Earl Weaver and Tommy Lasorda.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
