He was instrumental in organizing the World Baseball Classic in 2006. Selig also introduced revenue sharing. He is credited for the financial turnaround of baseball during his tenure with a 400 percent increase in the revenue of MLB and annual record breaking attendance.

1 Where to start? Giving home-field advantage in the World Series to the league that wins a trivial midseason exhibition game, allowing Fox to determine the postseason schedule so there are needless off days and WS games in November, allowing the players union to bully him on PEDs, forcing the Astros to move to the American League, allowing Fox and ESPN to shove the Yankees and Red Sox down our throats. I wouldn't be surprised if he imposed the designated hitter on the National League before he's through. -- Submitted By: (Asham1046) on May 8, 2013, 8:59 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 He boned when he cancelled the 1994 WS. So many "what might have beens?", and in the end the Sotomayor decision kept the exact same system in place for years to come making the work stoppage completely pointless. Understand that decision would have happened whether they kept playing or not. Even now the system is more or less the same, with a luxury tax that isn't very effective. Bud was a small market owner who's daughter was running his "former" team". Total conflict of interests. I'd like to see him gone. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 9, 2012, 1:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Let me clarify -Best BASEBALL Commisioner ever. I was not speaking to other sports. Everything else stands. -- Submitted By: () on October 26, 2011, 9:20 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote

5 No. Best Commission Ever goes to Paul Taglibue. Bud Selig doesn't even hold a candle to him -- Submitted By: () on October 23, 2011, 11:40 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Not the best commissioner ever, but compared to Roger "obsessed with London" Gooddell, he looks like a genius. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 23, 2011, 9:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Best Commissioner Ever. Shepherded the game out of the acrimony of '94 into relative labor peace since then. Innovations have increased the popularity of baseball. I believe there in not a person in America who loves the game more. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on October 23, 2011, 6:04 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This is REALLY easy: Bud Selig boned enough fish to fill Lake Michigan when he and a few other malcontent owners cold-bloodedly muscled an honorable gentleman named Fay Vincent out of the commissioner's job in 1992. Predictably, Selig has proven to be the most pro-owner commissioner in baseball history, and the number of wise moves he has made in the last nineteen years can be counted on the fingers of one hand - even if that hand has been mangled in an industrial accident. The sooner he retires, the better. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 12:43 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
