LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers says paychecks for some part-time game day staffers bounced, but not because the team didn’t have enough money to cover them.

Dodgers spokesman Josh Rawitch said Thursday that when the team filed for bankruptcy, its accounts were frozen for 48 hours.

Some security guards and ushers found their paychecks had bounced. Those who have direct deposit weren’t affected.

Rawitch says the checks were reissued Wednesday.

The team filed for bankruptcy on Monday. Owner Frank McCourt, who is in the middle of a high-stakes divorce, blames baseball Commissioner Bud Selig for refusing to approve a multibillion-dollar TV deal.

On Tuesday, a bankruptcy judge in Delaware authorized the team to borrow $60 million to make payroll.
