NEW YORK (AP) -Having missed Barry Bonds' 756th homer to meet with George Mitchell, baseball commissioner Bud Selig headed back to Milwaukee on Wednesday after speaking with his chief steroids investigator.
The baseball commissioner was in New York and watching on television when Bonds broke Hank Aaron's record in San Francisco on Tuesday night, a person with knowledge of Selig's whereabouts said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't allowed to discuss the situation publicly.
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.
Mitchell declined comment Tuesday. The former Senate majority leader was hired by Selig in March 2006 to investigate steroids in baseball.
Selig had 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.
