John Thorn, the Official Historian of Major League Baseball, will serve as chairman of the "Baseball Origins Committee" as his first official task in his new capacity, Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig announced today.

Major League Baseball has established an accomplished panel of 12 experts and historians that will seek to determine the facts of baseball's beginnings and its evolution...

I'm not sure why Thorn doesn't just serve as a one-man panel. Considering, you know, he just wrote the frigging book on this subject.

Godspeed, though. It'll be great if we can finally bury Abner Doubleday and throw away the cemetery map.
