Dodgers trustee to meet with media Wednesday
Dodgers owner Frank McCourt won't be there. McCourt will be in New York to meet with executives from Selig's office, in part for an explanation of exactly what Schieffer's role will be with the Dodgers.
Schieffer, the former president of the Texas Rangers, was appointed Monday by Selig to oversee "the day-to-day operations, business and finances of the Dodgers and all of the franchise's related entities."
He will have approval rights of any expenditure over $5,000.
