Major League Baseball Has Elected A New Commissioner

Major League Baseball has just elected a brand new commissioner beginning the 2015 season. His name is Rob Manfred.

Manfred has been working with the league for many years, and was a long to be thought of as the next man in line.

Today (Aug 14),  the owners of MLB decided to hand off the reigns to Manfred getting 23 out of 30 votes.

Bud Selig has been the commissioner since 1992, in which he has endured a couple strikes, the performance enhancing scandal, and the decision to make an All-Star Game end in a tie.

Part owner of the Boston Red Sox Tom Werner and MLB’s executive vice president for business Tim Brosnan were the other candidates.
