There it was on Page 3 of the Sports section of today's Los Angeles Times. With a Dodger blue backdrop, the new Dodgers owners delivered this message:
Dear Dodger Fans,
AS THE NEW OWNERS OF THE DODGERS, we accept this responsibility with great humility and appreciation.
This team is a community treasure. The title of ownership is merely a statement on paper. This team belongs to you. It belongs to everyone who has dared to love Dodger Baseball with a passion.
The Dodgers have built a tradition of excellence -- legends like Robinson and Newcombe, Koufax and Drysdale, Garvey, Cey, Lopes and Russell, Valenzuela and Hershiser, Alston and Lasorda, Scully and Jarrin.
The tradition of excellence continues with the Dodger greats of today. We are committed to building the next dynasty and strengthening Dodger pride.
