Manfred’s Takes Over as Major League Baseball Commissioner
Yesterday was the first official day for new Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred.
Manfred penned a letter outlining some of his goals as commissioner. Please give it a read as it really shows his passion for continuing to grow the game of baseball.
Another interesting item is that there will be new baseballs for the 2015 season, of course with Mr. Manfred’s signature on them. Since the 2000 regular season, the official game-used baseballs have had the signature of former commissioner Bud Selig. Prior to the 2000 season, the official baseballs bore the signature of the respective league presidents.
