|Former Cub Shortstop Dunston Opposed to Tribune Sale of Team
|WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -- Former Chicago Cubs All-Star shortstop Shawon Dunston has filed an objection in Delaware bankruptcy court to the Tribune Co.'s sale of the team, saying he's still owed college scholarship money.
The family of billionaire Joe Ricketts, founder of TD Ameritrade, has agreed to buy a 95 percent stake in the team and its Wrigley Field home for $845 million, but the deal must be approved by the bankruptcy court and Major League Baseball.
In a handwritten, one-paragraph statement docketed by the court Thursday, Dunston said he was objecting to the sale because the Cubs owe him college scholarship funds, which he has not used.
Dunston played for the Cubs from 1985 to 1995 and in 1997.
