Testimonials

"I’m very thankful to have had the opportunity to participate in the 2013 MLB Diversity Summit exploratory interviews. My interview with the Arizona Diamondbacks went well. I was offered a position in the Inside Sales Program and moved out here to Arizona about 3-4 weeks later. That was my first time attending the MLB Diversity Summit. Thanks again!"

"My name is Danielle Lugo, I'm 22, and graduated May 2013 from Morgan State University in Baltimore. I'm from East Los Angeles, California. I was sponsored for the past two years to attend the MLB Diversity Summit. My summit success story was not from an interview, but from riding the same bus to the ball park at the right time with the Minor League President Pat O'Connor. I am now employed by the Urban Youth Academy in Compton teaching softball to youth of all ages. The summit was an absolutely amazing experience and anyone interested in a career in baseball should attend."

"Through the supported efforts from Major League Baseball's Diversity Summit, I was able to contribute to delivering scholarships to students at Texas Southern University to attend the summit. As the results of my efforts I became the President of my schools Sport Studies Leadership Association. This ultimately led to a phenomenal internship with Major League Baseball in the Youth and Facility Development department."

"It has been one week since the Diversity Business Summit has came to a close, and to my surprise, I am still experiencing a great deal of residual excitement. All 30 clubs under one roof, with both owner's and execs expressing such commitment and enthusiasm...it was truly inspirational. I was both honored and thankful to have been a part of it all...it enhanced my pride as an American and fortified my faith in my country...it was phenomenal!"

"I was given the opportunity to attend the first MLB Diverse Business Summit in Chicago the summer of 2012 and it was a great experience. After the Business Summit, I continued to network with sports professionals that I had met while in Chicago. A few months later, I received an email from the Philadelphia Phillies requesting that I come in for an interview. My interview went extremely well and I was offered an internship as a Ticket Service Representative. Working in the ticket office has been a great experience for me to meet different people and work hands on in a professional sports environment."

Allan H. (Bud) Selig,
Commissioner of Major League Baseball


Allan H. (Bud) Selig was named the ninth Commissioner of Baseball on July 9, 1998, by a unanimous vote of the 30 Major League Baseball club owners. Prior to his election as Baseball's Commissioner, Selig served as Chairman of the Executive Council and was the central figure in Major League Baseball's organizational structure dating back to September 1992. On January 12, 2012, Major League owners voted to extend his contract through December 31, 2014.

Selig has led the way toward implementation of many of the game's structural changes, including the expanded Wild Card playoff format, Interleague Play, realignment, restoration of the rulebook strike zone, consolidation of the leagues' administrative functions and instant replay.

In August 2002, Selig engineered an historic labor agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association that avoided a work stoppage for the first time in 30 years and included meaningful revenue sharing among the clubs. In October 2006 and again in November 2011, MLB and the MLBPA continued the unprecedented era of labor peace by reaching new five-year collective bargaining agreements. By the end of the current agreement, baseball will have gone at least 21 years without a strike or a lockout, the longest period of uninterrupted play since the inception of the collective bargaining relationship.

The significant changes to baseball's economic system have helped the sport achieve competitive balance, made evident by many developments, including nine different clubs winning the last 12 World Series and 26 different clubs participating in the Postseason over the last 10 years. From 2000-2009, MLB produced eight different World Series Champions, which exceeded the comparable figures of the other major American professional sports during the decade, and 14 different Clubs earned the 20 available slots in the World Series in the 10 years, which was also unsurpassed among the results of the other leagues.

In November 2005, MLB and the MLBPA announced an historic agreement to fortify its drug testing policy, making it the most comprehensive in professional sports and highlighting Selig's long-term efforts to try to rid the game of illegal steroids and other performance-enhancing substances. In July 2010, MLB became the first U.S. professional sports league to conduct blood testing for the detection of Human Growth Hormone (hGH) with the start of testing among Minor League players. In November 2011, the program became a part of MLB's collective bargaining agreement with the MLBPA, making baseball the first North American professional sport to adopt such testing.

Selig has expanded the reach of the sport in numerous ways. Under his guidance in January 2000, MLB took the unprecedented step of centralizing all of the sport's Internet rights under MLB Advanced Media. On January 1, 2009, MLB Network launched as the largest debut in cable television history. In 2006 and again in 2009, MLB and the MLBPA staged the World Baseball Classic, the most important international baseball event ever ventured, in which Major League players competed for their home countries for the first time.

Selig is guiding the game through a significant renaissance. Major League Baseball set its all-time regular season attendance record each year from 2004-2007, culminating in an all-time high of 79,503,175 fans in 2007. The 2008 season marked the second highest attendance total in history with more than 78.6 million fans. With more than 73 million fans again each year from 2009-2012, the last nine years represent the nine highest-attended seasons in baseball history. Revenues have increased more than five-fold, from $1.2 billion in 1992 to the $7.0 billion mark in both 2010 and 2011, which produced an all-time high.

Selig received many significant honors for his accomplishments, philanthropy and corporate citizenship in recent years. In March 2010, the Jackie Robinson Foundation, which aids academically distinguished minority students, presented him its Lifetime Achievement Award. In May 2010, the Taylor Hooton Foundation bestowed its inaugural Taylor's Award to Selig for his impact on educating American youth on the dangers of performance-enhancing drugs. In August 2010, the Milwaukee Brewers unveiled a statue in Selig's likeness outside Miller Park, honoring all of his efforts for his hometown and for his leadership of the Brewers and the game of baseball. In September 2010, Stand Up To Cancer, dedicated to groundbreaking translational research in the fight against cancer, made its first Named Innovative Research Grant in honor of Allan H. Selig and his wife, Suzanne L. Selig, for spearheading MLB's remarkable industry-wide support. In August 2011, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the Allan H. (Bud) Selig Center for the Archives of Major League Baseball Commissioners, a permanent research space within the halls of Cooperstown, dedicated in his honor. In September 2012, the Green Sports Alliance presented its first Environmental Leadership Award to Selig; the Natural Resources Defense Council called Selig "the single most influential environmental advocate in the history of sports."

Selig is a major supporter of his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as Marquette University. The University of Wisconsin has named several need-based scholarships and a history department chair in Selig's honor. Selig, who has taught at Marquette University Law School since 2009, was named to its adjunct faculty as distinguished lecturer in sports law and policy in 2010.

Bud and Sue have three daughters and five granddaughters.

Jim Crane,
Owner and Chairman Houston Astros


On November 17, 2011, when Major League Baseball unanimously approved the purchase of the Houston Astros by a group headed by Houston businessman Jim Crane, a new era of Astros baseball began.

As the new Owner and Chairman, Jim Crane hit the ground running upon taking control of the Astros by immediately putting his plan to rebuild the franchise into place. As a highly-successful businessman in Houston and former standout college pitcher, Jim has the credentials to make the Astros a winning team both on and off the field.

From the start, Jim has been clear about his goals: To make the Astros a ballclub that can have sustained success at the Major League level by building a top-notch farm system, and to provide Astros fans with an outstanding experience at Minute Maid Park.

As a Houstonian, Jim shares the same passion for the Astros as its fans and is dedicated to bringing those fans the World Series championship that they deserve.

During the last two offseasons, Jim hosted several sessions with Astros season ticket holders and loyal fans at Minute Maid Park to receive feedback on a variety of issues. As a result, several new, fan-friendly initiatives were put into place, including a reduction in ticket prices of thousands of seats and rebates for season ticket holders. Under Jim's leadership, the Astros also used fan feedback to help design the popular new uniforms and logo that were unveiled in November. Jim and the front office team will hold similar sessions in the coming year to keep the momentum going and further improve the fan experience at Minute Maid Park.

Jim and his wife, Franci, reside in Houston.
