Tommy Lasorda didn’t hang up on me

I bring this up because Lasorda’s beloved Los Angeles Dodgers are (were, thanks to the Red Sox) in the World Series, and my only connection with them revolves around the Hall of Fame manager and a shortstop, Dave Anderson, who played (mostly) poorly for the Dodgers in the 1980s. Anderson starred at the University of Memphis (then Memphis State University), where I was a student and sports editor of the campus newspaper, The Daily Helmsman.
