Frank McCourt moved on from denial to acceptance some time over the past month or two, and yesterday he started to make amends. Speaking to reporters at the dedication of a youth baseball field yesterday, McCourt said that, for the most part, Dodgers fans have been great to him since he’s been there. But then he added:
“I know the last couple years were very, very difficult. I’m very, very sorry about that. We’re going to move forward and handle the situation now in as professional a way as possible and make sure the baton is passed here in a classy way.”
He also said that he’s “clearing up a number of things in my personal life as well,” which I can only assume means that he unfriended Jamie on Facebook and blocked her on Twitter. Good for you, Frank.
Seriously, though, it’s kind of nice to hear a little self-awareness from the guy for once. Too little, too late, but at least it’s something.
