Selig On Oakland Athletics Stadium Situation: ‘This Is Always Something I Wanted To Get Resolved’

Putting an end to the Oakland Athletics ongoing stadium saga is definitely on commissioner Bud Selig’s to-do list. “This is always something I wanted to get resolved before I leave office, which is another five-and-a-half or six months,” said Selig on Tuesday, as he held court in the Raiders locker room for more than 30 minutes as part of his farewell tour.
