H.Darr Beiser-USA TODAY Sports
On Thursday, Rob Manfred was elected baseball's 10th commissioner and will succeed Bud Selig in January. Per ESPN:
quote:

A labor lawyer who has worked for Major League Baseball since 1998, Manfred beat out Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner in the first contested vote for a new commissioner in 46 years. The third candidate, MLB executive vice president of business Tim Brosnan, dropped out just before the start of voting.

"I am tremendously honored by the confidence owners showed in me today," Manfred said. "I have very big shoes to fill."
Manfred had spent the previous 15 years as MLB's executive vice president of labor relations.
