BALTIMORE (AP) - Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is looking forward to writing a book, teaching history and relaxing when he retires this winter.
Before that happens, however, he hopes to introduce his successor - perhaps as soon as Thursday.
Baseball's 30 owners will meet in Baltimore this week to vote on Selig's replacement. A seven-man committee whittled down an expansive list to three candidates: MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred; Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and Tim Brosnan, MLB Vice President of Business.
Speaking at Camden Yards on Tuesday, Selig said, ''The process has worked just the way I thought it would. I gave them a great list of names, and these names were on it.''
To win Thursday's vote, a candidate must receive approval from 23 owners.
