LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — CBSLA Sports Director Jim Hill has covered Tommy Lasorda for many years in Los Angeles.

Following the passing of the Dodger great, Hill took a moment to reflect on his dear friend and what he meant to the city.

“Tommy was one of my best friends in the world,” Hill said Friday. “He’s one of the people that is responsible for me having the terrific job that I have right now.

The Dodgers Hall of Famer died Thursday night after suffering a heart attack. He was 93.

LOS ANGELES – 1985: Manager Tommy Lasorda of the Los Angeles Dodgers is interviewed by broadcaster Jim Hill following a game in the 1985 season at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. 

“He taught me about baseball. He taught me all the intricacies of baseball and everything,” Hill continued. “One of the things I’ll never forget — It was the Friday before Mother’s Day in 198 when I lost my mother. I flew to San Antonio, Texas not knowing where I was going to stay. Tommy Lasorda told Steve Brener, then the PR director for the Dodgers, ‘You find Jim Hill,’ and Steve said, ‘Tommy, there could be 100 hotels in San Antonio.’ Tommy said, ‘I don’t care. You find him.'”

“I hadn’t been in my room for five minutes. The phone rang. I was at the Omni Hotel in San Antonio. The phone rang, it’s Tommy Lasorda saying, “Whatever you need from me, I’m right here for you my brother and I love you,” Hill remembered.

Lasorda spent an incredible 71 years with the Dodgers organization. He managed the Dodgers for 21 seasons from 1976 to 1996. He won two World Series titles in 1981 and 1988 and has 1,599 career wins as a manager, 22nd all-time.

He’s very special to me, he’s very special to all of us and we love him,” Hill said. “He’s gone now to the big Dodger in the sky. That’s where he wanted to go.”

Hill then recalled the last time he spoke with Lasorda saying, “I spoke with Tommy about two and a half weeks ago. I just called to see how he was doing. He said, ‘Fine, good to talk to you.’ I said, ‘OK, you know, Happy New Year, keep the faith.'”

“He was always the eternal optimist. To him, the glass was never half-empty, it was always half-full. And in Tommy’s case, it was half-full, and then some,” Hill said. “The impact that he had on Major League baseball is really nothing compared to the impact he has had on his fellow mankind and there will never, ever be another like Tommy Lasorda.”

Lasorda had been hospitalized in Orange County in November with an undisclosed ailment. He was in the hospital for six weeks before returning home in early January.

He is survived by his wife Jo, his daughter Laura and his granddaughter Emily Tess.

VIDEO2:4802:48Jim Cramer says these 7 Covid-era winning stocks have staying powerMad Money with Jim Cramer

CNBC's Jim Cramer on Monday offered investors a list of stocks that saw huge gains during the height of the Covid pandemic and continue to perform well.

"Wall Street wrote off all the Covid winners, but a handful of these companies have proven to be real staying power giants. and I think it's absolutely worth sticking with their stocks," the "Mad Money" host said.

Stocks have been beaten down this year as persistent inflation, the Federal Reserve's aggressive interest rate increases, Russia's invasion of Ukraine and Covid lockdowns in China have rocked investors' faith in the stock market.

Some of the hardest-hit names include companies whose stocks soared to stratospheric heights during the pandemic, as low interest rates allowed investors to bet on risky, high-growth names. Many of these stocks saw losses as the Fed started raising interest rates this year and drove investors to sell-off their holdings.

According to Cramer, however, some of the Covid-era winners have continued to perform well despite the economic headwinds.

Here is his list of stock picks:

  • Amazon
  • Danaher
  • Thermo Fisher Scientific
  • PerkinElmer
  • DoorDash
  • Costco
  • CVS Health
  • Disclosure: Cramer's Charitable Trust owns shares of Amazon, Costco and Danaher.
