Brewers Fans To Be Reminded Of Connection To Bud Selig Forever

MLB commissioner Allan H. "Bud" Selig, the former car salesman who presided over the first and only canceled World Series, the scourge of the steroids era and an embarrassing tie in the all-star game, will be commemorated with a statue at Miller Park.

Talk about rewarding mediocrity.

It's probably tough enough rooting for the Brewers, a team that hasn't won a World Series in more than 50 years. But now the poor fans in Milwaukee will have to look at a 7-foot bronze bust of Selig at Miller Park's Home Plate Plaza when they come to the ballpark.

"We are proud to honor Commissioner Selig for all of his efforts on behalf of the Milwaukee Brewers and Major League Baseball," Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said.

"The Brewers and Miller Park are in this city because of the commissioner’s vision and dedicated efforts. Just as importantly, he has remained a prominent and highly philanthropic member of our community while effectively leading Major League Baseball during his tenure as baseball’s top executive."

Clearly, some people have different interpretations of effective leadership.
