Last Friday a bankruptcy court approved the sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team to a private group of investors for a record price of $2 billion, the largest in American sports franchise history.
Among the group of buyers include former LA Lakers player “Magic” Johnson, CEO of Guggenheim Partners Mark Walter, and former executive of the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals Stan Kasten. The selling of the team helped it emerge from Chapter 11 reorganization.
The Dodgers’ financial troubles began when owner Frank McCourt and his wife filed for divorce. For years, the couple fought for ownership of the team until the MLB took over last April.
