Watch Tommy Lasorda’s Odd Ontario Airport Spot

Who knew former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda was so passionate about the Ontario International Airport?

The  84-year-old filmed a television commercial in support of the Inland Empire airport gaining control from Los Angeles World Airports — owners since 1985.
