PHOENIX — On the heels of Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig announcing on Thursday that he would stick to his plan and retire in January 2015, Washington Nationals managing principal owner Ted Lerner issued a statement on Friday morning.

“I am confident that Bud Selig’s legacy will be a standard by which all future commissioners will be measured,” Lerner said. “The Commissioner should be proud of the accomplishments under his strong leadership. His legacy will have many chapters: Labor, economics, technology, and community initiatives, to name a few.

“In Washington D.C., however, there is no greater legacy than the one he wrote by helping to return our national pastime to our nation’s capital.”
