MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers are erecting a statue of baseball commissioner Bud Selig outside Miller Park and will unveil it on Aug. 24.Selig headed a group that bought the Seattle Pilots in bankruptcy court in 1970, moved the franchise to Milwaukee and renamed it the Brewers. He became acting commissioner in 1992 and took the job full-time six years later, turning control of the team over to his daughter, Wendy Selig-Prieb. The Selig family sold the team to a group headed by Mark Attanasio in 2005."The Brewers and Miller Park are in this city because of the commissioner's vision and dedicated efforts," Attanasio said Monday.Selig's foundation donated statues of Hank Aaron and Robin Yount that were unveiled when Miller Park opened in 2001. Selig's statue, which will be more than 7 feet tall, will be built by the same designer, Brian Maughan.
You know those guys who are legends in one place but turn into total dunderheads when they move on to bigger and better things, I think Bud Selig is one of those guys.
Yea, what a jerk. The wild-card really ruined the game,oh and saving baseball in Milwaukee what was he thinkig?
Revenue sharing is iffy, and he hasn't gotten a cap yet (basically the only major league not to have a cap for the last couple of years and next two weeks).
