Bud Selig Meets With Frank McCourt Face-To-Face In N.Y.
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and Dodgers Owner Frank McCourt, each in N.Y. for quarterly league owners meetings, held their first face-to-face discussion since MLB took over operations of the embattled franchise three weeks ago, according to several industry sources. There was no immediate word as to the full substance and outcome of the conference. McCourt declined to comment upon leaving MLB HQs yesterday afternoon. The session was nonetheless significant, as Selig in recent weeks has refused to meet with McCourt, in part due to legal reasons amid a potential challenge from McCourt to the league takeover (Eric Fisher, SportsBusiness Journal).
Selig is "scheduled to speak with reporters" today (L.A. TIMES, 5/12).
