After 10 days in court and 10 witnesses providing testimony, the divorce trial between Frank and Jamie McCourt concludes on Wednesday. The closing arguments should return the focus to whether Frank has a valid agreement that awards him sole ownership of the Dodgers or whether the team should be considered community property. Here are some questions and answers that summarize where the case stands: How can there be a valid agreement if there are two versions of it, one that says the Dodgers are his and his alone and another that says Frank and Jamie share ownership?

Frank McCourt might have to become business partners with his ex-wife in order to keep the Dodgers in the family, her attorneys said Tuesday. With the Dodgers set to report to spring training in three weeks, the legal battle to determine who owns the team is about to envelop a second season. After a procedural court hearing Tuesday, attorneys for Jamie McCourt said they would soon assert what they said were her rights as co-owner of the team. "That is not to say she is going to appear on the first day of the season and say, 'I'm here; I'm firing people,' " her attorney Dennis Wasser said.

IT IS SUNDAY morning in the middle of nowhere--Bloomington, Ill., actually--and Steve Garvey has a little time to kill. He's sitting in his hotel room, talking about baseball, particularly about his swing. It wasn't so much a swing, really, as a ritual. He eagerly hops off the bed and offers a demonstration. Stepping to the imaginary plate, he raises his right hand to his invisible helmet and then tugs gently--almost daintily--at the front of his shirt as he settles into his batting stance.

Steve Garvey, the retired All-Star first baseman who played for the San Diego Padres and whose clean image was sullied by revelations of sexual infidelity, was sued Wednesday by a woman who said he fathered her 2-year-old child. Rebecka Mendenhall's Superior Court suit said she was engaged to Garvey when she became pregnant with her child, Slade, who was born Oct. 13, 1989. Garvey broke off the relationship before the child was born and married another woman.
