Baseball end of season...Selig to retire - Sep 27th, 2013 - Sports

— Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says he will retire in January 2015. Selig's involvement in baseball began in 1970 when he bought the Seattle Pilots in bankruptcy court and moved the team to Milwaukee. He became acting commissioner in 1992 and has served longer than every baseball commissioner except Kenesaw Mountain Landis.

The regular season ends this weekend. The Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians each picked up their seventh straight wins last night, keeping the Rays one game ahead of the Tribe in the battle for the first AL wild-card berth. Alex Cobb tossed three-hit ball over seven innings and Evan Longoria drove in three runs to lead the Rays to a 4-0 shutout and their first three-game sweep of the Yankees in New York. Yan Gomes hit a two-run homer and Michael Brantley had two RBIs as the Indians beat Minnesota 6-5 to stay one game ahead of Texas for the final wild-card berth.
