The former Los Angeles Dodgers manager passed away at the age of 93, the team announced on Friday (January 8), via ESPN.

He suffered a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest at his home on Thursday night (January 7) and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later, according to the report.

He managed the Dodgers from 1976 to 1996 and won two World Series titles, four National League pennants and eight division crowns. He was also named NL Manager of the Year twice and won 1,599 career games. He spent 71 seasons with the Dodger organization, and the last 14 as special advisor to the chairman.

“We mourn the passing of Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda. He was 93,” the MLB organization said in a statement on Twitter.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Jo, who he married in 1950, and their daughter Laura and granddaughter Emily.
