Dodgers PR exec jumps to Arizona

Josh Rawitch, the Dodgers' vice president of communications, is moving up in the standings by taking the position of senior vice president for communications with the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks. He was one of the last executives at Dodger Stadium to remain from before the McCourts took over ownership. Rawitch has been with the team for 16 years, working up from the marketing side to the media side and ultimately the top job In communications. In Phoenix he will again work for Derrick Hall, one of the many team officials to leave Los Angeles after the McCourts arrived.
