Bud Selig Reportedly Stepping Down In January Of 2015

Selig_2013Bud Selig insisted way back in July of 2012 that he planned to step down following the 2014 season and today he will reportedly make it official, announcing that he will cease being commissioner in January of 2015.

Selig has talked about retiring before, only to remain on the job, so there’s still some “I’ll believe it when I see it” skepticism surrounding this announcement, but the timing gives MLB a chance to establish a full-time successor and make a seamless transition.
