Passion for Baseball

Bud Selig developed a deep love for sports, particularly baseball and football. He became a passionate fan of the National League and eventually became one of the main shareholders of the "Milwaukee Brewers" club.

Over time, Selig became a central figure in the Milwaukee baseball community.

Commissioner of Major League Baseball

In the early 1990s, Bud Selig was appointed as the Commissioner of Major League Baseball. He was responsible for overseeing various scandals, player trades, and other operations within the league. After a series of scandals surrounding Selig, a decision was made to remove him from the position. However, in 1998, Selig was once again approved as the Commissioner, as no suitable replacement could be found. He continues to hold this position to this day.

Fighting Doping

In 2006, Bud Selig took a serious stance against doping in baseball. He conducted numerous negotiations with the owners of major clubs to establish new regulations regarding illegal substances. Selig expanded the list of banned substances and implemented mandatory blood tests for amphetamines. Additionally, he ensured that the name of a player caught using steroids would be officially disclosed, and the player would face disqualification. The rules have become stricter, and players who repeatedly violate the ban on prohibited substances can be suspended for the entire season.
