DORADOS, TECOS APPEAR TO HAVE OWNERSHIP ISSUES SETTLED

Two Mexican League teams under scrutiny in the offseason have been the Chihuahua Dorados and Nuevo Laredo Tecolotes after LMB president Plinio Escalante told both franchises they needed to clarify their ownership situations in order to field Liga teams in 2010.

The clarifications have apparently come to pass. The Dorados are being leased to a Chihuahua group headed by Mario Rodriguez by team owner Jose Maiz (pictured). Maiz, who was elected to the Salon de la Fama in 2002, also owns the Monterrey Sultanes. The Mexican League allows people to own multiple teams.

Meanwhile, according to Puro Beisbol, the Tecolotes have submitted papers outlining their ownership structure, naming Victor Manuel Ordonez their new team president. Ordonez will replace longtime Nuevo Laredo baseball figure Victor Lozano at the top of the team.
