Statement from managing principal owner Theodore N. Lerner on Commissioner Selig

"I am confident that Bud Selig's legacy will be a standard by which all future commissioners will be measured. The Commissioner should be proud of the accomplishments under his strong leadership. His legacy will have many chapters: Labor, economics, technology, and community initiatives, to name a few. In Washington D.C., however, there is no greater legacy than the one he wrote by helping to return our national pastime to our nation's capital."
