Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax may testify for the owners of New York Mets at a civil trial accusing them of turning a blind eye to Bernard Madoff's epic fraud. ... According to the Mets owners, Koufax opened a Madoff account at Wilpon's suggestion, and has been a lifelong friend of Wilpon, with whom he played high school baseball in Brooklyn, New York. "It strains credulity to think that Mr. Wilpon would expose his oldest and closest friend to potential financial ruin" by letting him invest with Madoff, if he knew Madoff was a fraud, the Mets owners said.
