chick btl/d.taub/1stjc If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. That was the feeling of L.A. City Councilmember Laura Chick, who early this month announced her intention to lead a team of investors to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. An earlier proposal to sell shares in the team to fans didn’t go far Major League Baseball doesn’t allow it so Chick said she would buy the team along with former baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth, filmmaker Steven Spielberg and real estate magnate Eli Broad. “I’ve learned a great deal in recent months about how the almighty dollar rules,” Chick said in a press release. “I’ve therefore decided, ‘If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’ and worked hard to put together the best possible group of really wealthy investors.” The councilmember, who represents a portion of the southwest San Fernando Valley, also proposed changing the baseball team’s name to “the Chicks.” The date of Chick’s announcement? April 1.
