Madoff and Koufax

Sad news, with the release of information that Sandy Koufax was among those who lost money in the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme.
It makes sense-Koufax and Fred Wilpon, the owner of the Mets, are friends going back to childhood, and we know Wilpon lost hundreds of millions.
Remember, Koufax retired after the 1966 season, about a decade before free agency. So it isn't as if he made millions of dollars playing baseball. Let's hope he didn't have all his eggs in the Madoff basket.
