Interesting fact about Tommy Lasorda: one of, if not the best, offensive catchers of all time was drafted by the Dodgers at Lasorda's request in the final round of the 1988 draft. Mike Piazza's father asked his friend, Lasorda, to draft his son out of community college. Mike Piazza went on to hit 427 homeruns.
