Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt to chair Major League Baseball's succession committee

St. Louis Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt will chair a succession committee to determine the process for selecting a replacement to baseball Commissioner Bud Selig.

Chicago White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf also is on the panel, which includes Colorado chairman Dick Monfort, Philadelphia president Dave Montgomery, Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno, Pittsburgh chairman Bob Nutting and Minnesota chief executive officer Jim Pohlad.

Selig, who plans to retire in January, sidestepped a question of whether he would remain as commissioner emeritus.
