YouTube Flashback: Tommy Lasorda Goes After the Phanatic

Ah, me

We have no idea why Major League Baseball published this video of Tommy Lasorda going insane on the Phillie Phanatic this week to its YouTube channel, but what the hell:


That was 1988, the Dodgers team that won the World Series behind Orel Hersheiser’s pitching and Kirk Gibson’s dramatic walkoff home run. The Phillies team? Ended up 65-96. Makes this most recent lost year seem less painful, eh?
