Bud Selig Name-Drops Willie Mays At Party

ORLANDO, FL—While attending a recent party following one of Major League Baseball's winter meetings Monday, Commissioner Bug Selig mentioned Hall of Fame outfielder Willie Mays repeatedly throughout the night, recounting numerous anecdotes of meeting, talking to, and being in the same restaurant as the former Giant.

Later Selig was seen regaling New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner with the story of the time he met Derek Jeter.
