Selig, who has been at the helm for 22 years, leaves behind a complicated legacy as he prepares to step down as MLB commisioner.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, who turns 80 at the end of July, will step down from the job he has held for 22 years on Jan. 24, 2015. He has presided over some of the most difficult times in baseball and leaves behind a complicated legacy. “The nicest part of all this is I have great memories,” Selig says. “It’s a tough job, no question, and I have a lot of tough days. But it’s a remarkable human experience.”Brendan McDermid/Reuters
