Bud Selig is set to retire from his post on Jan. 25, with Rob Manfred set to take over as the commissioner of baseball. Friday, Major League Baseball released the following statement:
Major League Baseball Commissioner-Elect Rob Manfred today announced that he has given the sport’s longtime leader, Allan H. (Bud) Selig, the title of Commissioner Emeritus, which will be effective on January 25th, when he officially retires as Commissioner. As Commissioner Emeritus, Selig will be available to advise Manfred and to assist with special projects as Manfred begins his term as CommissioneR.
So what is he going to advise ROB? How to further mess up the game? Maybe he can help you to make exhibition games have more of a determination on factors effecting The World Series!
