Bud Selig Still Hoping To See Game At Every Major League Baseball Stadium

NEW YORK—Admitting that it has always been a lifelong dream of his, baseball commissioner Bud Selig told reporters Wednesday that he still hopes to eventually attend a game at every MLB stadium in the country. “So far, I’ve been to six—Fenway, Tropicana, Nationals Park, the Phillies one, and both stadiums in New York,” said Selig, who then quickly corrected himself upon realizing he has yet to visit the new Yankee Stadium. “I haven’t done Milwaukee yet, or any of the Midwest ballparks, now that I think about it.
