MLB Appoints Former Rangers President Schieffer To Run Dodgers
Published April 25, 2011
Schieffer, the younger brother of longtime CBS News journalist Bob Schieffer, represents a surprise choice compared to other names mentioned last week for the Dodgers role, such as MLB Exec VP/Administration and CIO John McHale Jr. and former Nationals President Stan Kasten, that have been closer to the game, particularly in recent years. Schieffer will represent Selig and the commissioner's office as the league seeks to stabilize the debt- and scandal-ridden franchise.
