Frank McCourt

Frank H. McCourt (born August 14, 1953 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American businessman. He was a co-owner and chairman of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Dodger Stadium in Chavez Ravine from 2004-2012. In 2004, he purchased a controlling interest of the Dodgers from Fox Entertainment Group, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. Prior to purchasing the Dodgers and moving to Los Angeles, McCourt was a Boston real estate developer, whose family resided in Brookline, Massachusetts. McCourt was raised Roman Catholic and attended Georgetown University where he earned an economics degree in 1975. He met his future wife, Jamie McCourt, when they were both freshmen at Georgetown. They married in 1979. The McCourt family has a long association with real estate and construction in the Boston area. In 1977, Frank McCourt founded The McCourt Company, which specializes in the development of major commercial real estate projects, particularly parking lots. In the late 1970s McCourt acquired 24 acres (97,000 m) in South Boston from the bankrupt Penn Central railroad and developed the L-shaped property into parking lots. That property is located here: 42°21′7.81″N 71°2′42.74″W /
