Far East Movement are a lucky bunch of guys!

They got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent Dodgers game at Dodger Stadium.

The guys also snapped a picture with Matt Kemp, the Dodgers' pitcher. We really like their chains. Kind of a Flavor Flav feel.

And near the bottom right you can spot

The Dodgers Have OFFICIALLY Been Sold To Magic Johnson And His Crew

Filed under: ZportzBusiness BlitzBaseballMagic Johnson

Magic Johnson dodgers

The Dodgers have kicked off their season with a phenomenal record, but now the new owners can finally start rejoicing because the $2 billion deal is officially CLOSED!

Magic Johnson is now the public face of the major league ball club with Mark Walter running things behind the scenes while Stan Kasten serves as CEO.

“The Dodgers emerge from the Chapter 11 reorganization process having achieved its objective of maximizing the value of the Dodgers through a successful Plan of Reorganization, under which all claims will be paid. The Dodgers move forward with confidence — in a strong financial position; as a premier Major League Baseball franchise; and as an integral part of and representative of the Los Angeles community.”

Former owner Frank McCourt, who drove the team into bankruptcy, didn't make out too bad either. He reportedly made about a billion bucks through the deal and still got to maintain some ownership of the stadium's parking lot.

One would think all this financial turmoil would have affected the team's game, but they are better than ever. Matt Kemp and the rest of the Dodgers crew are #1 in the National League West!

Keep up the good work, guys! Playoffs are a LONG way off!

Charlie Sheen Would Have Bought The Dodgers Too

Sheen Dodgers

Charlie Sheen wants everyone to know that if he totally had the kind of money that would buy the Dodgers, like Magic Johnson did, he would have also bought the Dodgers.

But, he doesn't, so he didn't.

LOLz!

A source caught up with Charlie to ask him why he hasn't purchased a team yet, and he responded with:

Magic Johnson To Make BILLIONS Through Dodgers TV Revenue

Filed under: ZportzBaseballMagic Johnson

magic-johnson-make-money-tv.jpg

We previously mentioned that Magic Johnson and some buddies bought the Dodges for an astonishing $2.15 BILLION.

And we're assuming U were just as shocked as we were.

So how will they make that money back, U ask?

TV revenue.

Once the Dodger's exclusive contract with Fox ends in 2013, the team will be able to take bids from other networks.

Estimates have already reached as high as a possible $4 BILLION in revenue!

Just from TV!

A sports firm consultant said:

"This whole deal is dependent on the broadcast revenues. In many ways it was not a baseball team being marketed; a broadcast property was being marketed."

Which means they won't have to raise ticket prices and risk alienating fans.

Gotta spend money to make money we guess!

So, Magic Johnson Bought The Dodgers!

Magic Dodgers

Weird, but cool!

Basketball legend Magic Johnson teamed up with some cool peeps — like Peter Guber, the producer of Tim Burton's Batman movies, and Rain Man and Flashdance — and straight up bought the dodgers for $2 Billion dollars.

Oh, and yeah, that's not a typo!!

We said BILLION!

Here's what Magic said in a statement:

"I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles."

So rad!

We can't wait to see if the new ownership will have a big effect on the team, or if everything will go on bein' status quo!

What do U think? Is the ownership change going to be good??

Go Blue!

Before beginning spring training in a few weeks, the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of their time off to give back to the city that supports them at every home game.

Members of the team (both past and present) put on their team colors and hopped in the Dodgers Community Caravan on Tuesday for a 2-day tour of the town, which sent them to support several charities like the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, the Mayberry Elementary School, the Los Angeles Regional Food Back and Five Acres.

Jared Kushner Wants The Dodgers!

Filed under: Business BlitzBaseball

Kushner Dodgers

Among the bidders for the Dodger is Jared Kushner, New York real estate mogul and man who apparently wants a taste of L.A.!

Not only does he own the New York Observer, he would end up being Major League Baseball's youngest owner at 31!

Only 9 bids made it to the second round, and Jared's was one of them — and a lot of the money is coming from his own and his family's pocket!

The crazy part is that the team is supposedly going to fetch anywhere between $1.5 and $2 BILLION dollars, so those have to be some pret-ty deep pockets!

Wow!

We wonder who will win!
