$1.4 billion Owner:
Frank McCourt sold the Dodgers in April through a bankruptcy court-led auction to Guggenheim Baseball for $2 billion. The deal included an additional $150 million to create a joint venture with McCourt on the parking lots and land around Dodger Stadium. The new ownership group includes Los Angeles Lakers' great Magic Johnson, former president of the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals Stan Kasten and film producer Peter Guber. Chicago financial services firm Guggenheim Partners financed most of the deal. The new group paid a record price for the franchise based on an impending new local TV deal that is expected to be worth more than $3.5 billion in cash and equity. (AP Photo) More From Forbes
