Lawrence J. Dolan (born February 8, 1931 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio) is a retired attorney and the principal owner of Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians.
Dolan attended St. Ignatius High School and got his LL.B. degree from University of Notre Dame in 1956. He also received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Cleveland State University.
Upon leaving Notre Dame, Larry served in the United States Marine Corps for two years where he attained the rank of First Lieutenant. Upon leaving the Marine Corps in 1958, Larry worked as Assistant Prosecutor in Geauga County, Ohio before going into private practice. He eventually became president and managing partner of Thrasher, Dinsmore, & Dolan in Chardon, Ohio.
Cleveland Indians owner
In 2000, Dolan (through a family trust) bought the Cleveland Indians of the MLB for $323 million from Richard Jacobs, who, along with his late brother David Jacobs, had paid $35 million for the club in 1986. Jacobs had taken the Indians public in 1997. As part of the deal, Dolan bought all of the stock at just over twelve dollars a share, making the franchise privately held once again.
In 2006 he started SportsTime Ohio to air Indians games. Larry Dolan has six children; among them are Matt who was a State Representative, and Paul who worked for his law firm and was since named as President, and later Chairman/CEO of the Indians. Dolan has said his children will eventually assume ownership of the Cleveland Indians in his stead. In 2012, STO was sold to Fox Entertainment Group.
His nephew James L. Dolan owns the New York Knicks of the NBA and the New York Rangers of the NHL.
He has three brothers: Charles; Bill (retired and living in Fort Myers, Florida) and; David who died in a glider plane crash in 1980.
