Tommy Lasorda, 84, is recuperating after a heart attack in June and battling what has been described as a severe case of vertigo.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Lasorda detailed his tombstone design.

"I've already told my wife that when I do go I want our home schedule attached to my tombstone. I want people who are in the cemetery visiting their loved ones to say, 'Let's go to Lasorda's grave and see if the Dodgers are playing home or away.' Hey, I love this organization so much I want to be working for it even after I'm dead."
