Three Strikes

Dodgers' Owner Fires His Wife

On the heels of the Dodgers missing out on their shot at the World Series, the team is getting even more bad news. Owner Frank McCourt has fired Jamie McCourt, his estranged wife and the Los Angeles team's chief executive. Jamie held the second-highest position in the team's organization, reporting to Frank. The team announced the couple's split last week, but made no indication about the impending rift in the team's ownership. Jamie, who is co-owner of the Dodgers, is rumored to be lining up investors to buy out her husband's stake in the team.
