Sentiment For MLB Commissioner Selig Positive Among Many Fans

|MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is still a favorite of autograph seekers in Cooperstown.
The 79-year-old Selig routinely gets a throng of autograph seekers each year at his FanFest Town Hall at the All-Star Game, one of a select number of appearances annually where he meets directly with the public. And attending quarterly owners meetings this week in Cooperstown, N.Y., it was no different. Selig was frequently approached while eating dinner Tuesday night at The Hawkeye Grill and asked to pose for photos and sign autographs. Diners could be seen showing off their cellphone photos after meeting Selig.
MLB owners are conducting their meetings in Cooperstown at the Otesaga Resort Hotel, the most prominent luxury hotel in town and a popular spot among tourists during the town’s busy summer season.
