Event

Bud Selig at Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts
Boswell Book Company, Oconomowoc's Books and Company, and the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts present Bud Selig, longtime Commissioner of Major League Baseball, to discuss his new book, which provides an unprecedented look inside professional baseball today. For this event, Selig will be in conversation with Tom Haudricourt.

VIP tickets, which include a copy of For the Good of the Game and entry to the signing line after the talk, cost $28.99 plus tax and ticket fee, available at seligwilson.bpt.me starting Wednesday, June 19 at Noon. Free registration, which includes admission but not signing line entry, is available Monday, June 24 at 8 am.

Selig takes fans inside locker rooms and board rooms and offers an intimate, fascinating account of the frequently messy process involved in transforming an American institution. He also speaks candidly about hot-button issues the steroid scandal that threatened to destroy the game, telling his side of the story in full and for the first time.

With a focus on how he helped bring the game into the modern age, Selig reveals his interactions with players, managers, fellow owners, and fans nationwide and explores the most difficult decisions and moments of his career, looking at how he worked to balance baseballs storied history with the pressures of the twenty-first century to ensure its future. As he looks back and forward, Selig outlines the stakes for baseballs continued transformation, and why the changes he helped usher in must only be the beginning.

Bud Selig, the former President of the Milwaukee Brewers and the ninth Commissioner of Baseball, is a major supporter of his alma mater the University of Wisconsin-Madison as well as Marquette University. He teaches a baseball history course at the University of Wisconsin and is also a lecturer in sports law at Marquette University and the Sandra Day OConnor College of Law at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.
