Jo Lasorda, widow of the former Los Angeles Dodgers manager, died Monday night at her Fullerton home at the age of 91. Tommy Lasorda died in January at the age of 93. The two had been married for 70 years.
"The eight or nine months they were apart, I think that this is the best birthday present that my father could get, is having my mother by his side in heaven," she said. "The two of them really did walk hand in hand all those years, never in front, never behind, always together."
