In a major development ahead of the 2024 MLB season, Commissioner Rob Manfred has announced a massive decision. The 65-year-old baseball top boss has revealed the date of stepping down from this current position.



Manfred has now informed the baseball world that he will retire from his post as Commissioner in January 2029. This massive reveal came on Thursday at a Spring training news conference.

This will bring an end to a 14-year tenure of him. He first picked up this position in 2015 when he replaced Bud Selig. At the moment he was given a five-year term, which in 2018 was extended upto 2024. He was later re-elected to this post and continued on.

However, he has now claimed that he won’t continue after this term and that he has informed about this decision to the higher-ups before.
You can only have so much fun in one lifetime. I have been open with them about the fact that this is going to be my last term. I said it to them before the election in July and I’m absolutely committed to that.

Manfred will now oversee five more MLB seasons. His biggest priority in this remaining time would be to sort of the relocation of the Oakland Athletics to Las Vegas. Recently, at an owners meeting he spoke about how he would be disappointed if the new ballpark did not open by 2028.
