Dodgers' bidders to meet MLB's ownership committee

RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer Published:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Remaining bidders for the Los Angeles Dodgers have been told they will be scheduled for meetings with Major League Baseball's ownership committee early next month.

The exact date of each group's meeting has not been set yet, but the range of dates for the sessions has been given to the bidders, a person familiar with the process said Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the parties have signed nondisclosure agreements.

Atlanta Braves chairman emeritus Bill Bartholomay, the ownership committee chairman, said the committee will investigate "very deep" into not just the lead individuals of the groups, but also the proposed limited partners and corporations that plan to invest.
