Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, is a man on a mission to clean up America’s pastime and to a certain degree a stain on his legacy. Selig, who started as acting commissioner in 1992, has seen the game baseball through many of it’s most progressive moments like the introduction of interleague, the wild card and the World Baseball Classic. However, the 1994 baseball strike and the Steroid Era also took place on his clock, with the latter issue proving to be the more indelible mark and it seems as if he’s going to do everything possible to rectify that. Yesterday, we reported that the MLB was planning to come down hard on players involved in the new steroid scandal. Well, in a recent interview with Sportsnet in Canada, Selig confirmed those reports. “We’re in the midst of a very intense investigation,” said Selig during an exclusive sit down interview with Hazel Mae, the full version of which will air during Sportsnet’s MLB Preview show on March 30. “Wherever we have any question, baseball will be very aggressive in our program, because as far as I’m concerned, I’m proud of where we are and if anybody cheats they’re going to get caught. “This investigation is so aggressive and so thorough that I am not concerned about it.”
