Outgoing Commissioner Talks With AP
NEW YORK (AP) — Outgoing baseball commissioner Bud Selig (SEE'-lihg) says he leaves with no regrets after nearly 22 1/2 years on the job.
Selig spoke to The Associated Press on his final day on the job before giving way to Rob Manfred. He said he envisions the possibility of Major League Baseball expanding to other countries.
Selig also defended the actions of the game in how it dealt with the drug crisis that dominated the news for several years and said he leaves the game with no major problems.
MLB expanded the playoffs, added instant replay and changed the All-Star Game format under his direction.
