Hall of Fame manager and Los Angeles Dodgers executive Tommy Lasorda has sold a townhouse in Placentia for $535,000 -- $17,000 over the asking price.

Lasorda, who has made his home in Fullerton for more than 50 years, bought the property in 1978 for $80,000, public records show.

The three-bedroom residence in a gated community was recently remodeled and features dark walnut floors, recessed LED lighting and an updated kitchen complete with quartz countertops and subway tile backsplash.

Open-plan interiors of more than 1,400 square feet include a living room with a stone-faced fireplace, a breakfast nook and a study/office. Three upgraded bathrooms sport marble-lined showers and custom vanities and mirrors.


Glass doors off the main floor open to a trellis-topped patio. There’s also an attached two-car garage.

He currently works as a special advisor to Dodgers controlling owner and Chairman Mark Walter.
