Is Charles Steinberg, Dodgers Executive Vice President/Creative and Communications, the man responsible for making Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" the Dodgers' official eighth-inning song, making his way toward the front office revolving door? From T.J. Simers at the LA Times:
IT BECAME apparent recently the Dentist was missing, the Dodgers' image maker hired to replace the Tipper Gore Lady, who had been hired to replace Derrick Hall in an effort to make the McCourts look good. And you think your job is tough.
Dr. Charles Steinberg was not at the two playoff games in L.A., and for those holding hands over ears, it was pretty apparent someone else was calling the shots in regard to the music being played in Dodger Stadium.
Insiders say Steinberg lost ground when the McCourts fell for Dennis Mannion, hired as COO. [...]
The Dodgers would only say, "Dr. Charles Steinberg is not available. However, the Dodgers have granted Charles permission to entertain offers from other Major League Baseball clubs and he is currently doing so."
While the exact job duties of an Executive Vice President/Creative and Communications are unclear to us, it was apparent at this year's Blogger Night that Steinberg was involved in making "Don't Stop Believing" and "God Bless America" Dodger Stadium staples this season. If Steinberg leaves, will those "traditions" stay? Stay tuned.
