Selig says he’ll retire after 2014 season

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig insists he will retire after the 2014 season when his contract ends.

Selig was at Target Field on Tuesday for a celebration of MLB’s Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program. He said “nobody believes it” but he’ll be done in 2 years, despite sentiment he’ll stay until 2016 to pass Kenesaw Mountain Landis as the game’s longest-serving boss.

Selig has been in charge of MLB since 1992, first as an interim commissioner and then permanently in 1998. The 78-year-old says he loves teaching and wants to write a book, so his time to quit will soon come.

Selig also said the site of the 2014 All-Star game, which the Twins are all but certain to host, will be announced soon, perhaps in August.
