PHILADELPHIA -- Dodgers Hall of Fame former manager Tom Lasorda suffered a heart attack in New York on Monday and is hospitalized, the team confirmed Tuesday.

Lasorda was in New York representing the Dodgers at the First-Year Player Draft when he took ill Monday night and was taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. He was said to be resting comfortably and could be released as early as Wednesday.

Lasorda, 84, has been a high-ranking club official since his retirement as manager midway through the 1996 season, when he also suffered a heart attack. His current title is special advisor to the chairman, given to him by former chairman and owner Frank McCourt.


Lasorda compiled a 1,599-1,439 record and won two World Series, four National League pennants and eight division titles during his 20-year career as the Dodgers' manager.
