When Tommy Lasorda Kicked a Teenager's Ass Outside His Fullerton Home

tommy_lasorda_autograph.jpg
With the Turkey Day semi-holiday upon us (news never sleeps, cabrones), I'm finally able to whittle through months of back issues--finished the Esquire with Justin Timberlake on it, Reason with Rand Paul, the Harper's featuring a hilarious Thomas Frank essay on the popularity of self-help books, and many, many more. Men's Journal with that True Blood guy was okay, but it did have a fascinating interview with former baseball manager Bobby Valentine.

The magazine asked Valentine who's the toughest guy he knew, and he replied with Tommy Lasorda, the longtime Los Angeles Dodgers manager and longtime Fullerton resident.

Because he once bitched out a reporter who asked a simple question about Dave Kingman? For antagonizing the San Francisco Giants all those years? Maybe dealing with Pedro Guerrero?

Nah, it's because Lasorda beat up a teen.

"He was tough with his fists," Valentine said. "I saw him in front of his house one day hit a kid who had been speeding by on a motorcycle. Knocked him across the hood of a car."

Lasorda, of course, has lived in Fullerton for nearly 50 years and nowhere else in that time. No need for Valentine to lie about the incident, so it leaves us with the image of Lasorda being as much of an asshole off the field as on--fun!

Okay, can't resist:

My friend worked at the Albertson's on Euclid & Orangethorpe before it shut down. He said Tommy would go in all the time and all he would ever do is bitch & complain about the freshness of the produce, the price of groceries, the long lines, etc.

Gustavo, you relay the quote from Valentine, but did you do any fact checking to see what the circumstances of the alleged incident were, or if it even happened at all? From what is printed in this article it appears not, which makes what  you wrote gratuitous at best.

After finding out that Lasorda all but disowned his son when he found out he had AIDS, and even now still denies what his son died of, I have no respect whatsoever for the man.

Anyone who would criticize Tommy is an asshole...The greatest manager ever!!!  He could still kick your ass at his advanced age.

Same here! I think it was Esquire that did a heartbreaking story about Tommy Jr. that showed his dad to be a deluded dipshit.

I'm sure this is not the first time you have heard this, but you are a complete loser. It's guys like you that make Dodger stadium what it is today. Unsafe. Too bad you weren't that Giants fan on opening day.

Hey stupid...you call him a "spic"...what a fucking moron. He's Italian, douche bag. A spic is what you are, you Roach infested Puerto Rican. Oh and how many world series have the Dodgers won since he left? Thought so. I bet you think Vin Scully sucks too, huh? Go cheer for your 1 world series winning Angels...and remember it took an ex Dodgers staff to finally get them a championship.

Actually, I'm going to post more than ever! See you soon!

Well, atleast you know your place. You are pure class. If you are such a fan, why don't you and your buddies try to submit an offer for the Dodgers? I'm sure you could probably scrap together a solid $2.75 in tips from your busyboy job at El Torito. If you had kept my chips and salsa fresh you could have had an extra dollar. So, don't quit your day job at the carwash.

Gus, congrats on your promotion. Hopefully we won't have to suffer through any more of your shitty posts. But, look on the good side. You've maxed out your potential, your bosses will look the other way for about a year, and you'll be gone in a year and a half. Max. Invest whatever raise you get as soon as you get it so you can buy that taco truck you are destined for.

909Jeff: You're a regular commentator here, so you know Culichi is super-exaggerated on purpose (he's an ElMo guy, btw, who probably makes more money than you or I!). Besides, what's wrong with this particular comment? It's the other one that's a bit crazier...

Gustavo... You really like this? 

This dude is a straight up ass hat? Just like you told me in the past... You're smarter than this!
