Per the AP, through a breaking news push notification on my iPhone, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be sold to a group that includes Magic Johnson.

This is not only great for the Dodgers, but great for Los Angeles. Magic has done pretty well in his post-NBA life, and I think the Dodgers will quickly turn into a top organization.

Actually Magic "heads-up" the group but how much he's personally invested or how much actual say he'll have in things, I don't know.

According to the AP brief, Stan Kasten (former Braves, Nats exec) is also part of the group. If he's not overseeing operations, then somebody in high regard will be doing so.

It's good to see the Dodgers in proper hands. Dodger Stadium is still one of the best places to watch a game.

Imagine NBA legend Magic Johnson one day holding the Commissioner's Trophy. It'd be like watching Wayne Gretzky parading with the Lombardi Trophy.

Totally agree. My favorite NL team is the Dodgers so I am today.

A bit of a local tie-in, looks like the controlling owner of the Dodgers when all the dust settles will be a local guy, Mark Walter who is CEO of the Guggenheim Partners, HQ'd in the Loop.
