Sandy Koufax on Madoff-Mets Trial Witness List

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax is among witnesses scheduled to testify at a trial next week to determine if the New York Mets' owners must give up millions of dollars they received from jailed financier Bernard Madoff.

Koufax's name is on a list of a dozen witnesses who might be called by Mets' lawyers to testify at the Manhattan civil trial. The list was submitted Tuesday.

Koufax is a childhood friend of Fred Wilpon, one of the Mets' owners.

A trustee recovering money for investors who lost billions of dollars in the Madoff fraud has said the Mets' owners knew or should have known that Madoff was acting illegally. A judge has said the Mets could be forced to pay up to $300 million if a jury agrees.
