Murdoch's Dodgers vs. Turner's Braves

Murdoch’s Dodgers vs. Turner’s Braves — We pit the media mogul’s teams against each other

Posted on

Atlanta Braves owner (and Vice Chairman of this magazine’s parent company) Ted Turner couldn’t stop mortal enemy Rupert Murdoch from buying the Los Angeles Dodgers last month, so now the two media magnates can settle their longtime rivalry on the baseball diamond. In celebration of the new season, we’ve pitted the two All-Star egos — and their National League teams — against each other using the new Sony PlayStation baseball sim, MLB ’99. The software don’t lie: Maybe a boardroom series is in order.

Box score

Braves 6 Dodgers 5
Murdoch’s Dodgers 5 13 0
Turner’s Braves 6 11 0
