Manfred To Be Next MLB Commissioner

Rob Manfred is the new commissioner of Major League Baseball.  League owners voted unanimously for baseball's current Chief Operating Officer to be the successor to retiring commissioner Bud Selig.  The other finalists were MLB Executive Vice President of Business Tim Brosnan and Boston Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner.  Selig is stepping down in January after serving as acting commissioner since 1992.  Manfred initially received 22 of the necessary 23 votes among the league's 30 owners.  A second vote still did not reach a consensus, but the eight dissenting teams eventually relented to make the third vote unanimous.  Manfred becomes the 10th commissioner in league history.  He's been an MLB executive since 1998.
