According to the web site TMZ, former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda recently suffered a mild heart attack.

Lasorda, age 84, is reportedly "okay" and slated to be released from the hospital on Wednesday. He experienced the heart attack on Monday while in New York for the MLB draft.

CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman confirms the news and reports that Lasorda had a stent put in place to relieve an artery blockage and that he's presently resting comfortably at Columbia Presbyterian. “The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue,” Lasorda joked in a statement released by the team. “I'm looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers.”
