DOVER, Del. (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers are asking a Delaware bankruptcy judge to postpone a hearing on Major League Baseball’s effort to force a sale of the team.

Attorneys for Commissioner Bud Selig asked the judge last week for an Oct. 12 hearing on the league’s request to file its own reorganization plan, which calls for owner Frank McCourt to sell the team.

The league also said the Dodgers’ plan to sell television rights to future games without league approval will spell the end of the ball club.

The Dodgers responded Tuesday, saying the league is trying to cripple their reorganization efforts. They want the judge to postpone the hearing on whether the league can file its own plan until after a hearing on the league’s effort to disqualify the Dodgers’ attorneys.
