Selig on the A's

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig showed his incredible bias against the Oakland A's during a televised interview with NBC affiliate WCR-TV in June 2001. Follow the link below to see the interview in its entirety.

"I watched 32 years ago the Kansas City A's move to Oakland. They hurt the Giants badly. They never really did very well themselves. It was a horrible mistake."
- Bud Selig, 6/2001, annual congressional baseball, Washington, D.C.
