Bud Selig to receive 'Commissioner Bud Selig Award'

Elsa

Of course, Bud Selig is going to get a trophy named for himself.

Bud Selig is one of the least-liked figures in baseball. If you need explanation on this, please read Grant Brisbee's article on THE MT. RUSHMORE OF BASEBALL UNLIKABILITY and Rob Neyer's follow-up on Bud Selig, human scorpion. No baseball fan I have ever spoken to likes Bud Selig, whose legacy is one of failing to create a legacy.

Nobody except, um ... himself, I guess?

So far as I can tell from their website, the Baseball Assistance Team is an MLB-affiliated organization that helps baseball players who have fallen on hard times.

Which is great, but still, the BUD SELIG AWARD.
