 NEW YORK (AP) -Bud Selig decided to get together with George Mitchell this week rather than watch Barry Bonds.
The baseball commissioner and some of his top aides are scheduled to meet with the chief steroids investigator later this week, a person with knowledge of the session said Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't allowed to discuss the meeting.
Mitchell said in May that his probe was in its ``final phases,'' but he has not publicly stated a timetable for issuing his report.
Selig was in San Diego on Saturday night when Bonds hit his 755th home run to tie Hank Aaron's record, but he left California the following day and is not in San Francisco for the Giants' series against the Washington Nationals.
In Selig's absence, baseball was represented by executive vice president Jimmie Lee Solomon and Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, a special assistant in the commissioner's office.
Selig's spokesman, Rich Levin, said Tuesday he wasn't sure when Selig would resume attending Giants' games. Levin and Mitchell declined comment on meeting plans for Selig and Mitchell, the former Senate majority leader who was hired by Selig in March 2006 to investigate steroids in baseball.
Selig said July 24 that he would try to be in attendance when Bonds hit his milestone home runs and was at games in Los Angeles and San Diego last week.
