The Dodgers added another left-hander — maybe the best of all time.

Hall of Famer and Dodgers icon Sandy Koufax agreed to rejoin the organization as special advisor to chairman Mark Walter. In that capacity, the notoriously private Koufax has agreed to spend a part of spring training working with the team's pitchers at the training complex in Arizona and also consult with the team throughout the season.

"I'm delighted to be back with the Dodgers," Koufax said in a written statement announcing the arrangement. "I'm looking forward to spending time with the team during spring training and to contributing in any way I can to help make the team a success for the fans of Los Angeles.

"Some of my most cherished memories came at Dodger Stadium."

Tuesday's announcement puts to rest Koufax's brief feud with former Dodgers ownership during which he refused to have any involvement with his former organization. Koufax severed ties with the Dodgers during the Fox ownership era over his displeasure with a 2003 article in the New York Post (also owned by News Corp.) related to a biography released at the time.

Relations between Koufax and the Dodgers warmed once the team was sold to Frank McCourt and Koufax was an occasional (and unannounced) visitor during spring training once again, including last year.

"The Dodgers are thrilled to have Sandy back with the organization," Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said. "Sandy's experience and perspective will be invaluable as we endeavor to do everything in our power to bring the city of Los Angeles a World Series champion."
