Bud Selig, just like any commissioner in one of the four major North American professional sports leagues, has been a lightning rod for criticism during his 17-year tenure at the helm of Major League Baseball.  He was acting commissioner for 6 years before that, beginning in 1992, giving him two decades of leadership.   He plans to retire after the 2014 season, and while there is rampant speculation on who might replace him, there is no question that the game of baseball is in a lot different place than it was when he began his leadership.  Our blog will break down his legacy in two parts, both the things Selig did right, and the things he did wrong.  This blog, we focus on five things that are better today than they were when he took over.
