Though the financially-troubled Dodgers are not formally for sale as of now, former Dodgers greats Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser are forming an exploratory ownership group in the event the franchise is placed on the market.
Garvey, who reportedly conceived the idea of forming the group, approached Hershiser and the two launched the Garvey-Hershiser Group.
"We've always talked and communicated through the years," Hershiser, 52, who has a vast background in baseball and is currently an ESPN analyst, told the Los Angeles Daily News. "He was a little more of a role model for me, the way he did things. I was like, 'That's what I want to do.' He's been a good businessman."
Hershiser, who after concluding his stellar playing career became a pitching coach for the Texas Rangers and then worked in their front office, added, "When he called and said he wanted me to be part of this group, I said, 'Garv, I'd always be interested in helping and doing something like this that would be a lot of fun.' We're forming a group that's investigating situations as they arise. That would be very interesting for me."
Although excited of the possibility of becoming part of the ownership, Hershiser, who spent all but five of his 18 seasons with the Dodgers, is still backing team owner Frank McCourt.
Hershiser, recognized with the 1988 NL Cy Young after setting the record for consecutive scoreless innings pitched at 59, met with Garvey and other possible investors in Los Angeles Friday, according to the Daily News.
The idea, according to Garvey, came after hearing Hershiser reminisce about his playing days with the Dodgers.
"I was just thinking to myself, we had so many similarities: the success of the team, rapport with fans, life after baseball," Garvey told the newspaper. "I gave him a call. We had lunch. I told him he might be the perfect fit. He loves what our business plan is, and he's talked about how he could make contributions. He's a pretty smart guy, and he's the type of person I think would be a great asset for us."
The report also links Garvey to billionaire and part-owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins Ron Burkle, as a possible partner.
Former Major League Baseball first baseman Garvey, 62, was part of the 1981 World Series champion Dodgers team. He was the 1974 NL MVP for the Dodgers and a 10-time All-Star over 19 seasons with the Dodgers and San Diego Padres.
