Magic Johnson says he put $50 million into Dodgers deal

Magic Johnson is more than the celebrity face in the Dodgers' new ownership group. On HBO's "Real Sports" on Tuesday night, he says he wrote a check for about $50 million. He tells Jon Frankel that he plans to change the baseball landscape of Los Angeles. The trailer is below:

It's a double Dodgers episode of the show: a feature on fan violence centers on Bryan Stow, the Northern California paramedic who suffered permanent brain damage when jumped by two men in the Dodger Stadium parking lot for wearing a Giants jersey.

The show debuts here at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.
