Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda doesn’t want his devotion to his beloved franchise to end when his life eventually does. Lasorda, 84, has been affiliated with the Dodgers most of his life. And he wants that relationship to continue — even after he dies.
“I’ve already told my wife that when I do go I want our home schedule attached to my tombstone. I want people who are in the cemetery visiting their loved ones to say, ‘Let’s go to Lasorda’s grave and see if the Dodgers are playing home or away’… I love this organization so much I want to be working for it even after I’m dead,” Lasorda told the Los Angeles Times.
I love these words adapted from Ron Hutchcraft’s book, “A Battle for a Generation,” pp 11-12.
Never in the history of the Life Saving Service (set up to rescue people on the North Carolina’s Outer Banks beaches) did a drowning person come to the door of the station asking, “Would you please rescue me?” In every case, someone had to leave the safety of the station to save lives.
Today, our life-saving station probably has a steeple with a cross on top. The title of the life-saving talk is on a sign out front, along with the name of the Head Rescuer. Inside, people are singing life-saving songs and having life-saving committee meetings. The station is a great place for the rescuers to have their needs met, their strength built. And it is the best place to bring people after they are saved. But it is not the best place to rescue people. In fact, when it comes to lost teenagers, most will probably not come to our life-saving station. If we wait until they do, most of them will die.
