The only son of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda has died of pneumonia at 33. Thomas C. Lasorda Jr. died at his home, family spokesman Lee Solters said. His father, mother and sister were at his side when he died, Solters said.

The younger Lasorda, an artist, has been ill for about five weeks and was hospitalized briefly at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Allen Metzger said he died of pneumonia and severe dehydration.
