Reporting from Chicago —
Baseball's owners held their quarterly meetings here today, with Jamie McCourt absent from sessions she had attended regularly.
Frank McCourt last month fired his estranged wife as chief executive, and she cannot continue to serve on ownership committees so long as she is not involved in club management, said a high-ranking baseball official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of pending legal proceedings.
Baseball officials are reluctant to comment publicly before a court takes up the issue of whether Frank McCourt is the sole owner of the Dodgers or Jamie McCourt is a co-owner.
"The Dodgers are in good hands," Selig said, "with [General Manager] Ned Colletti and [Manager] Joe Torre and Frank McCourt as the control person."
