Red Sox honor Selig before Yankees game

BOSTON (AP) It's not just Derek Jeter bringing his farewell tour to Fenway Park this weekend.

Commissioner Bud Selig is being honored by the Boston Red Sox for a half-century in baseball.

The former Milwaukee Brewers owner is touring ballparks this season before he steps down after 22 years as commissioner. He spent 55 minutes talking to members of the Red Sox front office and staff before a presentation on the field before the game.

The Red Sox played New York on Saturday in the second-to-last game of Jeter's career. The longtime Yankees captain was in the lineup at designated hitter.

Selig praised Jeter and said baseball was lucky to have him as a star because he represented himself and the game so well.
