Selig Discusses Attendance, Labor, Possible Int'l World Series
Published September 1, 2010
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig appeared on “The Dan Patrick Show” yesterday and said the league is "going to go over 60 million in attendance today." Selig: "It's really remarkable when I think of the nation's economy and where we are. I want to keep us moving in the right direction." Selig also discussed the league's relationship with the MLBPA, saying, "We've had labor peace for 16 years … which nobody ever believed was possible, including me." In addition, he said, "The game has never been cleaner than it is today." Meanwhile, Selig said a "true World Series" involving international clubs will not likely happen while he is commissioner. But he said, "That is my dream. By the way, the Japanese commissioner and I have had two meetings this year on that subject, but there's a lot of road to walk for both of us. A lot of people don't believe I'm going to leave in 2.5 years, but I have plans to do that, and whether it will be done before then or not, I really don't know" ("The Dan Patrick Show," 8/31).
