Selig set to retire happy when contract ends in 3 years
NEW YORK -- Bud Selig says he plans to retire as baseball commissioner in three years -- and he really means it this time.
"My contract is going to be over. I'm going to be 75 years of age. I want to teach -- I've already had some great offers -- and want to write a book," Selig said Friday.
Selig has repeatedly said in the last two years that he intends for this to be his final term as commissioner. Still, many owners think he can be persuaded to change his mind.
