Former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda has been admitted to a hospital in Orange County, where he is in the intensive care unit.

Lasorda, 93, was in attendance as the Dodgers won Game 6 of the World Series over the Tampa Bay Rays on Oct. 27 to secure the franchise’s seventh world championship.
