Bud Selig to retire in 2015
Bud Selig has been MLB's commissioner since 1992, but his lengthy and sometimes controversial tenure is nearing its end. Selig will announce that he will retire when his contract is up in January 2015. The game has been financially quite successful under Selig, although he did preside over both a lengthy strike and the scandal of performance-enhancing drugs. This season has almost been a microcosm of his tenure as a whole: exciting and competitive baseball alongside PED-related suspensions for a number of the game's biggest stars.
