Dodgers power couple Frank and Jamie McCourt have struck out in the happily-ever-after game. Citing "irreconcilable differences," Jamie filed for divorce from husband and Dodger owner Frank McCourt Tuesday, according to the LA Times.

In a petition to the Los Angeles Superior Court, Jamie made several demands including a request to be reinstated as the Dodgers' CEO and Vice-Chairmen, the Times said.

Jamie values the McCourt estate in excess of $1 billion, according to TMZ.  She lists her monthly expenses at nearly $500,000 and is requesting a range of benefits including 5 star travel accommodations, access to team doctors, and tickets to All-Star games and playoffs, TMZ reported.

The McCourts announced their separation two weeks ago. Frank McCourt asserted he is the sole owner of the Dodgers while Jamie McCourt claimed she had an ownership stake. He fired her as the Dodgers' chief executive officer last week.
