NEW YORK -- A top cancer research organization is honoring baseball commissioner Bud Selig by making a grant in his honor.

Major League Baseball was the first major donor to Stand Up to Cancer with a $10 million pledge in 2008.

The group says the grant is being made in the name of Selig and his wife, Suzanne.
