Former longtime Dodgers Manager Tom Lasorda was resting at home Sunday and is expected to make a full recovery after being hospitalized for four days at USC Medical Center for a bacterial infection, team spokesman Josh Rawitch said.

Lasorda, 83, who serves as special advisor to owner Frank McCourt, retired as manager in 1996 after suffering a heart attack. He served as Dodgers manager for 20 years, guiding them to World Series titles in 1981 and 1988.
