The club is a replica of TaylorMade’s R11 driver that debuted in January and it…Read More

Bud Selig and MLB Take Over Dodgers from Frank McCourt, Seven Years Too Late

MLB commissioner Bud Selig finally determined something Wednesday he should have known seven years ago: Frank McCourt is not a suitable owner and operator of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
