LOS ANGELES (AP) Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda was at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday for Game 3 of the NL Championship Series, a day after being released from a hospital.

The 89-year-old former manager who currently serves as senior adviser to chairman Mark Walter left a hospital on Monday after a 10-day stay caused by back and shoulder issues in addition to an extensive checkup.

Lasorda sat next to Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson in Walker's box for the game between the Dodgers and Chicago Cubs.

Lasorda guided the Dodgers to World Series titles in 1981 and '88, the last time Los Angeles has won the title.
