MLB commish Bud Selig to retire in 2015
NEW YORK — Bud Selig hhas been Major League Baseball’s commissioner since 1992, but his term will reportedly come to an end following the 2014 season. The former owner of the Milwaukee Brewers is expected to officially announce his retirement Wednesday, according to the Daily News.
More specifically, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that Selig’s retirement will begin in January of 2015.
“Bud Selig will today announce formally he’s retiring, effective in January 2015,” Heyman tweeted.
This isn’t the first time that Selig has attempted to retire as he was convinced to sign extensions on two previous occasions, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but he has finally decided to call it quits for good.
Although it isn’t yet known who the league’s next commissioner will be, he will be stationed in the central New York office, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY.
“The next MLB commissioner, accoring to several owners, will definitely have to be in the New York Office,” Nightengale said.
