Bud Selig Elected to MLB Hall of Fame

Bud Selig, the former Major League Baseball commissioner, was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday, making him the game’s first living top executive to receive the honor since Happy Chandler in 1982. Selig stepped down after the 2014 season, capping off a 22-year tenure that included the steroid era that brought widespread disgrace to the game and commissioner’s office. Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson said Selig “had a profound impact on how the game has matured over the last quarter-century.” John Schuerholz, a longtime baseball executive, considered the brains behind the Atlanta Braves’ franchise success in the ’90s, was elected alongside Selig.
