BIOTRONIK Names Baseball Legend and Hall of Famer, Tommy Lasorda, Brand Ambassador

Yeah, but that “Keep your tortellinis!...I’m getting my Closed Loop Stimulation elsewhere!” ad is a bit over the top.

BIOTRONIK, a leading manufacturer of implantable cardiac devices and pioneer of wireless remote monitoring technologies, today announced that baseball legend and Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda has been named BIOTRONIK’s new Brand Ambassador.

“Tommy Lasorda is an on-the-go guy and one of the most beloved personalities in baseball and sports,” said Rex Richmond, VP of Marketing at BIOTRONIK, Inc., USA. “In 2011, when his physicians determined he needed a pacemaker, Tommy and his doctors selected BIOTRONIK’s Evia SR-T pacemaker with Closed Loop Stimulation and Home Monitoring because it perfectly fits Tommy Lasorda’s health needs and lifestyle.”

“I’ve never been a quitter so I wasn’t looking forward to having to slow down now. I needed a pacemaker that could keep pace with me,” said Lasorda. “My doctors explained that my BIOTRONIK pacemaker was not only extremely safe and effective, but that it also has unique features that no other pacemaker has that let me maintain my active lifestyle.”

“I feel like my BIOTRONIK pacemaker has given me extra innings—and I couldn’t be happier,” Lasorda said.

In other news, Tommy Lasorda has a heart.

Karsten and Magic get the Dodgers and only overspent the expected $1.5bn by 500 million. How much does parking lot bankruptcy guy get?

btw, what happened to the auction? Did blurting out $2bn just obviate the need for one?

A lot of Dodger fans are going to need pacemakers when they hear what the Dodgers are being sold for.

Even an ####### like McCourt can't lose money owning a MLB team despite the mismanagement and divorce.

And robbig the team blind! I need to buy some parking lots

Can we get a Magic Johnson thread?

Can we get a Magic Johnson thread?

Fun Fact: Possibly the very first person to go on the air in the state of Michigan concerning Magic's HIV was...me. I happened to be looking at my college radio station's teletype machine when I saw the AP bulletin. I ripped it off, ran into the studio and interrupted programming with the newsflash. The Detroit stations didn't go with it for several minutes. Wow.

Fun conspiracy theory: Magic never had HIV, his wife was tired of the constant affairs, so she made him announce that he had HIV, both to publicly shame him and to keep the road beef away.
