Perhaps more than most sports, baseball is resistant to change—owners, managers, players, and fans all hate it. Yet, now more than ever, baseball needs to evolve in order to remain America's Pastime, suggests baseball's Commissioner Emeritus Bud Selig. Offering a true insider's look, Selig reviews the most significant decisions and moments of his career, including being at the helm during the steroid scandal. Along the way, Selig recalls the vital games, private moments, and tense conversations he's shared with some of the greatest players and managers of all time. The book also includes 16 pages of photos, and a foreword by the author of Wait Till Next Year.
"Entertaining and important.... [This book offers] a depth of understanding that fans rarely get."—Tony La Russa
