Frank McCourt looks like a guy leaving L.A. behind

Going, going … gone?

It appears Frank McCourt (pictured above) really is on his way out. Out of the Dodgers, out of his Los Angeles homes and even out of Los Angeles.

Less than two days after agreeing to sell the Dodgers, McCourt officially gave up his claim to his Los Angeles homes. Then The Times' Bill Shaikin learned he had put up his other Los Angeles endeavor, the L.A. Marathon, up for sale.

Sounds like a guy heading out of town. Save the pitchforks and torches.

McCourt surrendered the two side-by-side Malibu properties to ex-wife Jamie McCourt, as well as their remaining home in Holmby Hills and their condo in Vail, Colo., in the divorce settlement.

Fear not, he will not be left homeless. It’s not like they didn’t own a couple pieces of property. He gets their two homes back in Massachusetts.

They have already sold one Holmby Hills home, one mansion in Massachusetts, and I believe their property in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. There’s also an exclusive parcel in Montana, but you can’t expect me to be on top of all their land holdings. I’m a sports writer, not an escrow agent.

Meanwhile, Frank has lived the last two years in a Beverly Hills hotel. If they’d only bought one more mansion.

Relinquishing claim to his L.A. properties, selling the Dodgers and now the L.A. Marathon all seems prelude to a man planning on going home to Massachusetts.
