Bud Selig ready for Hall of Fame induction

NOW: Bud Selig ready for Hall of Fame induction


Hall of Fame fever has hit Cooperstown in upstate in New York, and one of Milwaukee's native sons is at the heart of it all. The Parade of Legends Saturday includes Bud Selig.

Selig has shown genuine emotion in the months leading up to induction weekend, and Saturday the longtime Brewers owner and commissioner says he feels like he's finally home, "I have been coming here now for a long time, and if you just drive the streets now, the streets are jammed. I am waiting for the parade. I meant what I said before, it's an overwhelming experience. It's an experience that you almost have to go through yourself for people to appreciate."

The growth of induction weekend mirrors the growth in the sport that Selig oversaw in nearly a quarter-century as commissioner. The big honor happens Sunday afternoon a mile from the Hall of Fame at the induction ceremony.
