MCMORRIS SAYS COMMISSIONER SEARCH NEARING THE FINAL TURN
Published November 7, 1997
Acting MLB Commissioner Bud Selig said yesterday that "achieving Phase I of realignment doesn't mean he plans to step down" from his post, according to Tom Haudricourt of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Selig made the formal announcement that the Brewers will shift from the AL to the NL for the '98 season, but said that the "latest development would not prompt him to step aside any earlier than originally planned." Selig: "This doesn't change any of that. There is a commissioner search committee. [Rockies Chair] Jerry McMorris is the chairman. He and I have been spending a lot of time on it" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 11/7). McMorris told USA TODAY's Hal Bodley that he hopes to have a commissioner recommendation for the Exec Council by the end of this month. McMorris said a list of 12 candidates a month ago is down to 5, including NL President Len Coleman and Selig (USA TODAY, 11/7).
