I believe the two greatest ambassadors of baseball alive today are Rex Hudler, and Tommy Lasorda.
After you listen to either of these guys passionately describe their experiences and their love for the game, you’ll have this uncontrollable urge to pull off the freeway and find the nearest batting cage. That is, if you’re listening to them in your car on the radio.
Today is Tommy’s 79th birthday, and he seems to get more fired up the older he gets.
Tommy’s day started with a truck pulling up in front of his home and a delivery person bringing him 79 Disney themed gift baskets.
Each basket had a letter attached from a close friend on what Tommy meant to them.
The whole event was orchestrated by Bobby Valentine who is in Japan managing baseball.
The Sports Frappe wishes you at least 79 more Tommy!
