Baseball Appoints Ex-Rangers President Schieffer to Run Dodgers

Major League Baseball’s appointment of J. Thomas Schieffer to monitor day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers will not have an impact on the team’s play, manager Don Mattingly said.

The selection of Schieffer, the former president of the Texas Rangers, was announced yesterday by Commissioner Bud Selig, who said last week that his office was taking over operations of the Dodgers because of “deep concerns regarding the finances” of the club.
