Peter Ueberroth: I'm not interested in Dodgers bid

November 8, 2011 |  1:29 pm

Peter3Former baseball commissioner Peter Ueberroth, who previously led groups that bid on the Dodgers and Angels, said Tuesday he would not pursue the Dodgers during the current sale process.

"I have no interest in bidding on the Dodgers at this time, but I'll be watching closely," he said. "I'm just wishing all the bidders well. I hope they consider the community. The enterprise is really partially owned by the fans and the community."

Ueberroth, perhaps best known in Southern California for his role as chief of the wildly successful 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, lives in Orange County. He served as commissioner of Major League Baseball from 1984 to 1989.
