Los Angeles Dodgers gets new owners
Magic Johnson (L) sits with Frank McCourt during the game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres in the home opener at Petco Park on April 5, 2012 in San Diego, California.
This final note on the way out. A ray of baseball sunshine here in rainy Los Angeles today. The sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers closed last night. A team that includes -- as I'm sure you've heard -- Magic Johnson, paid now-former owner Frank McCourt $2-billion-plus for the club.
McCourt does still have a stake in the parking lots surrounding Dodger Stadium, but at a press conference today, the new owners took a big first step at making amends for what was generally regarded as a disastrous tenure by the much-disliked McCourt. Parking's going to be cheaper -- $10 instead of $15.
So they make fans happy. And take some money out of Frank McCourt's pocket. Pretty nice, huh?
