Hershiser Interview "Went Really Well"
Tommy Lasorda, Dodgers special advisor to the chairman and the club's former manager (including Hershiser's tenure from 1983-94), introduced Hershiser to Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and took part in the interview.
"It was very comfortable because Tommy was there," said Hershiser, just before flying back to Texas on Wednesday. "He was able to ask some questions to help Frank McCourt get to know me better."
Hershiser, 47, said he spent the evening in the interview and got a few updates on Game 3 of the World Series. He said Dodgers general manager Paul DePodesta was not at the interview, but that he spoke at length with him by phone.
"I think it went really well," Hershiser said. "It's exciting to go through the process. We'll just wait and see."
It might be indicative of McCourt muscling DePo out of the process, but it might also be totally irrelevant. I don't think we should leap to conclusions.
