    The Dodgers new ownership group gets together for a group photo. They are from left; Bobby Patton, Stan Kasten, Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Mark R. Walter, Peter Guber, and Todd Boehly.

    The Guggenheim Baseball Management group has quickly turned around the Los Angeles Dodgers' fortunes since buying the team from Frank McCourt in 2012.

    The group is led by CEO Mark Walter. Ironically, the Chicago native is a longtime Cubs season ticket holder.

    Also part of the ownership group, former Guggenheim President Todd Boehly, Texas oil tycoon Bobby Patton and entertainment executive Peter Guber, who also co-owns the Golden State Warriors.

    Longtime baseball executive Stan Kasten is the most involved of the group, helping build the day-to-day roster that takes the field. He was president of the Atlanta Braves when they won 14 consecutive division titles.

    And of course, we all know Magic Johnson. His effervescent, ever-present smile helps set the mood for the ball club. Magic has proven to be the perfect choice to connect Mark Walter's group to the fervent Dodgers fan base.
