Tommy Lasorda turned 86 on Sunday, but that hasn’t stopped the old codger from getting around. For some reason, Tommy ended up in Georgia this week to meet with the family of baseball player Kel Johnson, a 17-year-old stud Georiga Tech commitment and U-18 Team USA member you’ll be hearing about.
And Tommy, being Tommy, didn’t shy away from feeding the deer on the Johnson property.
Kel (@KelJohnson25) tweeted:
Hanging out eating some apple pie with @TommyLasorda! What a guy
Lasorda was tight with Reagan, Jimmy Carter, George W, Frank Sinatra, and countless others and he is as humble a guy as I’ve met
I’m officially a @Dodgers fan
Just when you think Tommy is losing a step in his old age, he goes to Georgia and a teen swoons over the old geezer.
