Marriages end every day. But it’s not every day that a breakup brings into question custody of the Los Angeles Dodgers:

The larger, more incendiary issue — which carries repercussions for Major League Baseball — is whether Jamie [McCourt] is a co-owner of the Dodgers, as she contends. A date has yet to be set for the trial to determine whether the marital property agreements the couple signed several years ago, putting the Dodgers in Frank [McCourt's] name and their homes in her name, should stand and govern how the court divides the marital assets. Jamie contends she and Frank always believed she was a co-owner of the team. He says he is the sole owner.

I’m betting this is the first time a major-pro sports franchise has landed in divorce court. Too bad the Dodgers are being treated as property, versus dependent or child — the judge could give the McCourts joint custody, with the team splitting time between LA and, I dunno, Cape Cod…
