NEW YORK (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers say longtime manager Tom Lasorda has been hospitalized after having what the team called a “mild” heart attack.

The Dodgers said Tuesday that Lasorda was in a New York hospital. The 84-year-old Hall of Famer became ill Monday while in town to represent the club at the Major League Baseball draft.

TMZ first reported Lasorda’s condition and said the plan was for him to return home Wednesday.
