MLB's Bud Selig Discusses CBA, Retirement While At WCOS
Published March 30, 2011
Selig reiterated that he plans to give up his commissioner duties in December ‘12 when his current contract ends. But he was less absolute in his remarks on this subject than he has been in the past. He acknowledged he has not begun to formally consider successor candidates. “That is my goal,” Selig said of retiring next year. “Those are my thoughts today.”
Selig last week declined to specify a potential increase in ‘11 attendance, though he was targeting a strong bump back up after three straight annual declines. But today, the commissioner said the lift could be 5-8%.
