Commissioner's statement

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today upon learning of the passing of Hall of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn:

"I am terribly saddened to learn of the passing of Warren Spahn today. As a young Milwaukee Braves fan during the 1950s, I have many wonderful and vivid memories of the great Warren Spahn on the mound at County Stadium. He is a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest pitchers in the history of the game. More importantly, he was my friend. I will miss him. On behalf of Major League Baseball, I offer my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends."
