Bud SeligThe Sports Business Journal is reporting that Commissioner Selig, “earned $14.5 million in the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2005, according to the league’s tax return, which is believed to be baseball’s first public disclosure of the information.” 

As reported, the Commissioner’s Office is a tax-exempt organization and therefore public disclosure of tax records are not required.

The report goes further by saying, “Selig’s personal haul for the year is higher than NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue ever earned at his peak: $11.6 million in the 12-month period ended March 31, 2003.”

As further reported by the AP:

 Bob DuPuy, baseball's chief operating officer, received $4,875,000, the publication reported in this week's issue. Pay for executive vice presidents included $1.92 million for Rob Manfred (labor relations), $1.3 million for John McHale Jr. (administration) and $1,245,000 for Jonathan Mariner (finance).

Sandy Alderson, who quit as executive vice president of baseball operations in 2005 to become chief executive officer of the San Diego Padres, made $875,000. Jimmie Lee Solomon, who replaced Alderson in June 2005, made $543,583.
