Larry King is part of a consortium that will make a bid to own King’s favorite baseball team, ESPNLosAngeles reports.
According to the story, "Larry King, the legendary talk-show host and longtime Los Angeles Dodgers season-ticket holder, is part of a group of investors assembled by Chicago White Sox executive and Beverly Hills insurance agent Dennis Gilbert in hopes of buying the club, a source confirmed on the condition of anonymity."
The report adds, "The source said King’s financial stake in the ownership group is comparatively small. The group’s primary investors, the source said, are two high-ranking executives with Imperial Capital, a Los Angeles-based investment bank with offices in five other U.S. cities."
King was born in Brooklyn, New York, which was also the home of the Dodgers back then. The Dodgers moved to L.A. in 1958.
