L.A. Dodgers Bounce Payroll Checks

6/30/2011 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here it is in black and white ... The Los Angeles Dodgers are bouncing payroll checks.

0630_dodgers_check_exd_wm_3

TMZ has obtained a check ... signed by beleaguered Dodger owner Frank McCourt.  We've been asked to black out the name of the Dodger employee, but she works at Dodger Stadium.  The check was written on June 24 in the amount of $497.54.

The check was presented but rejected as "Refer to Maker." 

The L.A. Dodgers now say ... checks for some game day staff members did indeed bounce, but checks were reissued Wednesday.

Of course, the Dodgers have filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection.

It figures that Frank McCourt's signature is a big F. That's what Frank is. A great big, huge F.

You black out the name but show the amount??? The Dodgers could easily match the amount with the employee and discipline them.

Was watching TMZ live. I remember seeing on a billboard in an airport one time that if you aren't sure what to tip, double the tax rate is usually the minimum.

Yes, because they won't be able to track that exact amount back to the employee and fire them. Sheesh. I think it's really crappy that players and managers and owners all have millions, but the poor guy who works the concession stand get's a bounced paycheck. Not cool.

PLEASE get rid of this F***ing donkey. I hope this guy gets harassed every time he leaves his house, cause all of LA has to despise this douchbag by now.

Also feel free to stiff the guy if he was a ****. Rude or bad service should not be paid. Tell him to go back to waitering school.

They aren't bouncing them! When you file for Bankruptcy protection the Federal Courts put a hold on ALL Accounts that they included in the filing. Of course, this account is on it! It's payroll! DUH! Uncle Sam doesn't want them the write and clear out any funds that they may be able to use to pay off creditors!

No money sends a bigger message than a small bit of money. If you leave a small tip, all they'll think is that you're cheap.

How much would you like to bet it's only the working grunts whose checks are bouncing and not the players? Players would have walked off the field if their outrageous checks weren't cashed.
