LOS ANGELES (AP) - As the Dodgers head into Game 1 of the NL Championship Series, the Los Angeles City Council has honored former manager Tommy Lasorda with a celebration of his recent 90th birthday.

Council members praised Lasorda during Friday’s meeting and presented him a certificate of appreciation.

Lasorda said he feels like he was born in Los Angeles and thinks of himself as a real Angeleno.

He closed by saying, “Thank you for the honor and may God bless each and every one of you - and if the Dodgers don’t win this time I think I’m going to kill myself!”

The chamber erupted in laughter and applause.



The Dodgers face the Chicago Cubs at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night.
