DuPuy quits as baseball’s chief operating officer
Question of the Day
The move is effective Oct. 31, and Selig doesn’t currently intend to replace him.
Earlier Tuesday, Gene Orza said he will retire as the players’ association No. 2 official on March 31. The 64-year-old has been with the union since 1985.
DuPuy first attracted attention in baseball when he negotiated the $280 million collusion settlement with the union in 1989 after arbitrators found owners violated their labor contract by acting in concert to not sign free agents after the 1985, 1986 and 1987 seasons.
An attorney with Foley and Lardner in Milwaukee, he was Selig’s primary lawyer from 1992-98 after the Brewers owner helped lead a revolt that led to commissioner Fay Vincent’s resignation.
He was one of management’s primary negotiators, along with executive vice president Rob Manfred, of the 2002 and 2006 collective bargaining agreements, and was a driving force behind the formation of Major League Baseball Advanced Media, baseball’s Internet division.
