LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers today named veteran sports executive Dennis Mannion to the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Mannion, 48, has been Senior Vice President/Business Ventures for the Baltimore Ravens since December, 1999. Before joining the Ravens, he worked as the Senior Vice President of Ascent Sports, owners of the NBA's Denver Nuggets, the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and the Pepsi Center. Mannion spent 16 years (1982-1997) with the Philadelphia Phillies, for whom he served the last eight years as Vice President/Marketing.

"We are delighted to bring Dennis to the Dodgers during these exciting times," said Dodger Vice Chairman and President Jamie McCourt, who made the announcement. "He allows us to accelerate our business operation because of his vast and diverse sports background and reputation for innovation."

Mannion, who has the rare distinction of having experience in all four Major League sports, will oversee the club's traditional business operations, including corporate sponsorships, ticket sales, retail operations, concessions, broadcasting, and other revenue streams. Mannion will also coordinate the club's integrated marketing efforts. He has been part of two World Series (1983 and 1993 with the Phillies), an All-Star Game, an NHL Conference Championship and a Super Bowl (with the Ravens).

"This is the perfect time to be joining the Los Angeles Dodgers," Mannion said. "Frank and Jamie McCourt are building an incredible organization. They are passionate about winning and about creating the best fan experience in all of sports. It's a fabulous opportunity."

Mannion will be relocating with his wife, Pam, and five children to California.
