Mark Attanasio mentioned as possible replacement for Bud Selig
Selig will step away as Baseball Commissioner in 2015
MILWAUKEE- Bud Selig who brought baseball into a new era of inter-league play, expanded playoffs and the battle against performance enhancing drugs is stepping down as Baseball Commissioner.
He's expected to leave in early 2015 after 20 years.
One name being thrown around as a possible replacement for baseball's top office is Brewers' owner Mark Attanasio.
The Brewers are considered a small market team by baseball standards. But under Attansio they're drawing 2.5 million to 3 million fans a season.
Baseball is reflecting on the more than two decade legacy of Selig, the former Milwaukee use car salesman.
Selig recently noted that Major League Baseball has the toughest drug testing program of any major sport in America. Selig will be 80 year old when he steps down in January of 2015.
