Dodgers home opener sold out after team sale to Magic Johnson group

The Los Angeles Dodgers' home opener April 10 is sold out, following this week's news that the team will be bought by a group led by former Lakers star Magic Johnson.

The Dodgers announced late Wednesday that there are no more regular tickets available for the home opener. Fans can still buy seats if they purchase a season package.

The $2.15-billion sale of the team has re-energized fans, who are lining up to buy tickets and said they were once again hopeful for and committed to the Dodgers.

Controversy has surrounded the team in recent years with incidents of stadium violence and current  owner Frank McCourt's divorce case. 

Dodger Stadium is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
