Los Angeles Dodgers season ticket holders want to make sure Frank McCourt isn't screwing them over in the team's bankruptcy proceedings -- and they've filed a motion to make sure they're protected.
Attorneys representing a handful of season ticket holders filed docs with the bankruptcy court in Delaware ...seeking to establish a formal committee of more than 17,000 season ticket holders.
According to the docs, the committee's goal is to make sure Dodger funds are going to what they consider the most important part of the "fan experience" -- such as acquiring new players, meeting payroll, renovating the stadium, and operating concessions.
The motion also specifically mentions the need for "security" at the stadium -- which has been a hot button issue since the Opening Day beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow.
According to the docs, the season ticket holders have collectively poured "hundreds of millions of dollars" into the storied franchise -- and some individuals pay up to $150,000 per season.
The Dodgers filed for bankruptcy back in June. If the fans' motion is approved they could have a voice in future decisions about the team -- such as whether it's sold and to whom.
