NEW YORK — The Los Angeles Dodgers say longtime manager Tom Lasorda has been hospitalized after having what the team called a “mild” heart attack.

The Dodgers said Tuesday that Lasorda was in a New York hospital. The 84-year-old Hall of Famer became ill Monday while in town to represent the club at the Major League Baseball draft.

Doctors inserted a stent to correct a blocked artery in Lasorda’s heart. He is resting comfortably and in stable condition.

“The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue,” Lasorda joked. “I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers.”
