OAKLAND (CBS 5) — Amid divorce proceedings involving Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, there have recently been reports that Oakland A’s owner Lew Wolff would be interested in purchasing the Dodgers.
Late Wednesday, the A’s released a statement denying the rumor:
“There is no truth to this report. Mr. Wolff has no interest whatsoever in purchasing the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise. Furthermore, he has no knowledge of the source of any such rumor, and he has informed Major League Baseball and Dodgers ownership of his position,” the statement from public relations director Bob Rose said.
