Bud Selig Earns Two Year Contract Extension From MLB Owners

Bud Selig has been the commssioner of Major League Baseball since taking over for Fay Vincent as acting commish back in 1992. That’s an incredible run of leadership in which baseball endured the strike of 1994, the steroid era and still emerged as a strong pastime into yet another century. It’s safe to say that the MLB owners approve of the job Selig is doing since he just earned a two-year extension on his contract, which will take him through at least 22 years on the job. From the press release:

At the quarterly owners meetings on January 12th, a 10-day period commenced during which votes could be recorded by return ballot. The period has concluded with a 30-0 vote in support of the extension, which runs through December 31, 2014.
