From The Fourth Period:

It appears NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has been exploring the possibility of leaving his post for a job in Major League Baseball, according to a report on Toronto radio station The Fan 590.

During the program “Primetime Sports,” which aired yesterday evening, host Bob McCown revealed that Bettman has been lobbying for the role as Commissioner of MLB once current Commissioner Bud Selig retires.


“Gary Bettman has been campaigning for the job of commissioner of Major League Baseball to succeed Bud Selig,” McCown said, “but Stan Kasten is the chosen one.”


It has been widely reported that once Bettman leaves his post as NHL Commissioner, current Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly will take over, though that is not expected to take place in the near future.
