Bud Selig, Lauded For Past Accomplishments, Reinforces Decision To Retire Following '14
Published April 1, 2014
THE LAST SEASON BEGINS: Selig took in yesterday's season-opening Braves-Brewers game, and MLB.com's Mike Bauman noted Selig "rejected the suggestion" that his view of his final Opening Day as commissioner would be "bittersweet." Selig said of retiring following the season, "It's a decision I made. I've had this job now for 23 years. My (baseball) career started in 1964 so I've been at it for 50 years." Brewers Owner Mark Attanasio had said that he was "one of a group that was attempting to get Selig to stay" as commissioner beyond January '15. But Selig indicated that staying in his present role "was not going to happen." Selig: "I'm going to retire, I'm going to teach, I'm going to write a book, I'm going to do all the things I said" (MLB.com, 3/31).
