Tommy Lasorda announces retirement
"Tommy was a great motivator. He treated his players and coaches tremendously, and everyone on the team would do anything for him."
When Alston retired from his post as Dodgers manager in 1976, Lasorda was hired as his replacement.
In his first two full seasons as the Dodgers skipper, Lasorda would lead his club to 98 and 95 wins respectively, resulting in consecutive National League pennants.
