Scott Akasaki, the Dodgers’ Director of Team Travel, will engage former team manager and Hall-of-Famer Tommy Lasorda in an intimate discussion of Lasorda’s role as a baseball ambassador to Japan and other countries.

Lasorda began his career as a major league player before moving on to a storied lifelong association with the Dodgers as coach, manager, and finally executive. Akasaki has served as Dodgers’ Director of Team Travel for ten seasons and was the first Asian American to be named to the post in Major League history.
