Pirates chairman Nutting added to MLB commissioner selection committee



MILWAUKEE -- Pirates chairman Bob Nutting is one of seven members of a committee tasked with selecting the next commissioner of Major League Baseball, MLB announced today.

The committee, consisting of team owners and presidents, will choose someone to replace commissioner Bud Selig, whose term expires Jan. 24. Selig has led MLB since September 1992.

St. Louis Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. will chair the committee. Nutting and DeWitt will join Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort, Philadelphia Phillies president David Montgomery, Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno, Minnesota Twins CEO Jim Pohlad and Chicago White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf.
