Well now, here's another unexpected twist in the Frank McCourt story. Remember, yesterday Dodgers Vice Chairman Steve Soboroff went on "Airtalk with Larry Mantle" and decided to be feisty and almost snarky. He accused Tom Schieffer, the monitor sent by Major League Baseball to provide adult supervision at Dodger Stadium while the sport decides what to do about McCourt, of being unavailable and essentially useless, especially after the Osama bin Laden news broke. Now McCourt sends KPCC a correction, apologizing to Scheiffer:
"On a radio talk show this morning, Steve Soboroff made several comments regarding Mr. Tom Schieffer that were factually incorrect. One comment, in particular, that was not correct was Mr. Soboroff's characterization of Mr. Schieffer's response to the need for heightened security at the stadium following the President's announcement regarding the death of Osama bin Laden. Not only did Mr. Schieffer respond immediately to our request for permission to increase security at the stadium, he volunteered to assist the organization in any way that he could. I apologize to Mr. Schieffer for the inaccurate statements that were made about him."
Also, here's McCourt's interview on "KTLA Morning News" this week.
