DEVELOPING: MLB Takes Over LA Dodgers


Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is saying that he notified Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt that he "will appoint a representative to oversee all aspects of the business and the day-to-day operations of the club."

"I have taken this action because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers and to protect the best interests of the club, its great fans and all of Major League Baseball,"
Selig said. "My office will continue its thorough investigation into the operations and finances of the Dodgers and related entities during the period of Mr. McCourt's ownership. I will announce the name of my representative in the next several days.

"The Dodgers have been one of the most prestigious franchises in all of sports, and we owe it to their legion of loyal fans to ensure that this club is being operated properly now and will be guided appropriately in the future."
