LOS ANGELES - A lawyer for Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt says she has been fired after her marital separation from the team's owner.
Attorney Dennis Wasser says his client learned Thursday she was no longer employed by the Dodgers, who ended their season Wednesday with a National League championship series loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
McCourt and team owner Frank McCourt separated earlier this month.
Wasser says Jamie McCourt is disappointed and saddened by her termination. He says she'll address her firing in court.
Jamie McCourt was the highest-ranking woman in Major League Baseball.
