Sandy Koufax a Madoff victim?

According to an Associated Press story, he was on a list of Bernard Madoff’s clients that was made public yesterday. Here is a two-graf excerpt from the story, with a link to the full story below:

NEW YORK (AP) — Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax. Actor Kevin Bacon. World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein.
All three have at least one thing in common: Their names appear on a list of several thousand clients who invested with Bernard Madoff. The list has been made public in a court filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.
The list emerged late Wednesday, shortly after a whistleblower in the case, Harry Markopolos, told House lawmakers at a hearing that he had discovered that additional funds had relayed investments to Madoff in Europe _ and that the managers of these “feeder” funds may have ignored signs of the massive fraud scheme.

    On the other news front, looks like the Dodgers should pass on Ben Sheets; he’s leaning towards elbow surgery.

    How sad for Koufax. I only saw the end of his career but, man was he just the best ever. He and Big-D made a tandem I am not sure we will see again.

    And a true gentleman is Koufax. Hopefully he did not have a significant amount of his money invested. We fans do not need Koufax found living under a bridge like JR Richard.
