A family with a famous last name could be among those looking to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Representatives confirmed that the family of the late Roy E. Disney is looking at teaming up with other investors to make a bid for the Dodgers by the Jan. 23 deadline.

Roy Disney was the nephew of Walt Disney, but the family's investments are not tied to the Walt Disney Company.

If a bid is made, the Disney family would become one of several high-profile groups looking to buy the team from Frank McCourt, who agreed to sell the team by April 30.
