THE BOSS CONTINUES TO BACK SELIG/BEESTON TICKET
Published February 24, 1998
Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner told Murray Chass of the N.Y. TIMES that MLB's search for commissioner is "a charade. We don't need it." Steinbrenner advocates Acting Commissioner Bud Selig and MLB COO Paul Beeston to remain in the top two spots. Steinbrenner said, "Beeston can't want to stay much longer. I don't want to lose him. He's great for the job." Steinbrenner, on Selig becoming MLB's CEO while maintaining ownership of the Brewers: "That wouldn't bother me at all. He's the most impartial guy in the world when it comes to his team. Put it in the hands of Selig and Beeston and let's get on with it. Forget this phony commissioner search" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/22).
