Former MLB Commissioner Bud Selig Signs With IMG

Bud Selig, commissioner emeritus of Major League Baseball, has signed with IMG for representation in all literary and speaking endeavors.

Selig, who was officially elected as the ninth commissioner of baseball in 1998, led the MLB from 1992 to 2015. After formally retiring in January, he assumed his current role as commissioner emeritus, serving as an adviser to the current commissioner, Rob Manfred, and assisting with special projects.

During his 21-year tenure, Selig oversaw a variety of initiatives, including economic reform that revamped and greatly improved baseball’s competitive balance. He also delivered one of the most comprehensive drug-testing programs in American professional sports.

“I am delighted to be working with Sandy Montag and IMG as I begin the next phase of my career,” Selig said. “They will be a great help to me as I begin writing my memoirs and explore new and exciting opportunities both inside and outside the world of sports.”

His tenure as baseball’s chief executive expanded the game’s reach and modernized the offering through such fan-friendly steps as interleague play, the wild card postseason format and the World Baseball Classic. Selig also retired Jackie Robinson’s Number 42 in perpetuity in 1997 and led MLB to become a founding donor of Stand Up to Cancer in 2008.
