He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997 as a manager having won two World Series as manager of the Dodgers. In addition, Lasorda managed the United States baseball team that won a gold medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

Other PSAs will feature:

Each day this week, CPOW will post one of these PSAs on the USA Wrestling YouTube Channel for the world to see and for fans to enjoy.
