Lasorda leaves New York hospital
PHILADELPHIA -- Tommy Lasorda was released from a New York hospital Thursday morning, three days after suffering a mild heart attack.

On Wednesday, current manager Don Mattingly's health update began with the Hall of Famer.

"I talked to Tommy a little while ago, and he's doing good, sounds good," Mattingly said of the 84-year-old Lasorda, who remains hospitalized in New York after suffering a mild heart attack Monday night. "He said to tell everybody hello. He'll be in [the hospital] one more day, then he's headed home."

Mattingly said he appreciates the support Lasorda has given him since he arrived five seasons ago from New York.

"He's been great, always supportive since I came to L.A.," Mattingly said. "He told me I'm a Dodger now, that was good. Like I got knighted by Tommy, that was cool. He's always been there for me.

"You worry about him. He's getting up in age and he's so active, he doesn't slow down. This does take you back for a second. But you talk to him today and wouldn't know anything's wrong. He said we're playing great, winning a couple in a row. He's right on it."
