For the Good of the Game
The Inside Story of the Surprising and Dramatic Transformation of Major League BaseballLarge Print - 2019
The longtime commissioner of Major League Baseball provides an unprecedented look inside professional baseball today, focusing on how he helped bring the game into the modern age and revealing his interactions with players, managers, fellow owners, and fans nationwide. More than a century old, the game of baseball is resistant to change: owners, managers, players, and fans all hate it. Now more than ever, baseball needs to evolve; to compete with other professional sports, stay relevant, and remain America's Pastime, it must adapt. Perhaps no one knows this better than Bud Selig, who, as the head of MLB for more than twenty years, ushered in some of the most important, and controversial, changes in the game's history, modernizing a sport that had remained unchanged since the 1960s.
