I had the opportunity to put together a tribute on behalf of the St. Louis Cardinals in honor of the ninth commissioner of Major League Baseball’s last day. Bud Selig’s tenure with the MLB has helped bring the game to where it is today and more popular than ever.

The Cardinals wanted to honor his work from the perspective of the club. For the story, I was able to piece together an interview Selig did with Mr. DeWitt during his visit back in September, along with a quick interview I got with Mr. DeWitt during the Winter Warm-Up and Selig’s visit at this month’s St. Louis Baseball Writers dinner.

It was interesting to take a step back and see what he has accomplished in his time with the league.
