Dodgers Welcome Sandy Koufax Back To The Franchise With Role As Special Advisor
Published January 23, 2013
GOOD MOVE FOR TEAM: USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale writes under the header, "With Huge TV Deal, Koufax Return, Dodgers Come Up Aces." He had a "similar role, albeit unofficial," with the Mets and team Owner Fred Wilpon, a "close friend" of Koufax. D'Backs President & CEO Derrick Hall, also a friend of Koufax, said, "Sandy is excited, and this is what people want" (USA TODAY, 1/23). NBCSPORTS.com's Craig Calcaterra wrote it is a "nice move for the Dodgers, both substantively and for p.r. purposes" (NBCSPORTS.com, 1/22).
