Dodgers' Season Ticket Holders File Motion To Protect Their Interests

Filed under: Legal MattersBaseball

As you may know by now, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been experiencing some financial difficulty and owner Frank McCourt was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this past summer.

Now the team's faithful followers have filed a motion of their own to protect their interests as McCourt struggles through court proceedings to save his team.

Season ticket holders have filed court documents with the bankruptcy court in Delaware to establish a formal committee of more than 17,000 season ticket holders.

Since some have poured up to $150,000 a year into the team, their goal is to make sure Dodger funds are being used for what they consider the most important part of the "fan experience".

Basically, they want to make sure any money McCourt gets is used appropriately, for instance, to acquire new players, meet payroll, renovate the stadium, and operate concessions.

After a Giants fan suffered a brutal beating outside the stadium, the documents emphasize the need for increased security.

Sources report that if the motion is approved, they may have a voice in future decisions about the team.
