Veeck selling share of RiverDogs

Mike Veeck is selling his ownership share of the Charleston RiverDogs, but he expects to remain the team's president.

The Post and Courier reports:
Mike Veeck loves the Lowcountry as much as any time since he arrived more than 10 years ago to run the Charleston RiverDogs. But the wacky funster who uses Riley Park as center stage for "Fun Is Good" marketing schemes that draw national attention is selling his ownership interest in the Class A South Atlantic League team. Disputes with fellow minor league baseball executives who object to Veeck's zeal for independent league baseball drove him out.
