Tommy Lasorda, Singing, Instagram


Tommy Lasorda may not have understood what he was asking the "what" to be turned down for...but who does, really?

The 87-year-old former Dodgers manager and living baseball legend extended an offer to fans via Twitter (yes, 'cause he tweets regularly, as does 87-year-old Dodgers announcer Vin Scully) to give him something that they had always wanted to hear him say—and he would make a video of himself saying it and post it on Instagram!

So, congratulations to David Jones, magazine editor and self-described sports addict who tweeted back, "Turn down for what!!!"

Because that's what Lasorda made a video of himself saying quite enthusiastically, even adding a bit of a dance to go along with it. 

Turn down for what?!

Well, it's not as if he was ever going to say, "I love you San Francisco Giants."

"I CU TOMMY!!" Lil Jon himself tweeted at the snowy-haired sports icon.

Dodgers utility player Justin Turner also got in on the fun, tweeting, "I guess I know what @TommyLasorda wants me to use as my walk up music again this year #TurnDownForWhat#LA@Dodgers."

Well, only if Lasorda sings it himself!
