Brewers go high-tech in latest tribute to Bud Selig


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers are giving retired baseball commissioner and former team owner Bud Selig a high-tech tribute.

The team unveiled its "Selig Experience" attraction at Miller Park to Selig, current Brewers owner Mark Attanasio and other dignitaries at a private function on Thursday night. Hall of Famer slugger Hank Aaron was among those in attendance.

The highlight of the attraction is a remarkably realistic, hologram-like video of Selig displayed near the end of a roughly 15-minute multimedia presentation recapping the history of the franchise.

He speaks from his messy office at old County Stadium, with a plastic Tiparillo cigar lying in an ashtray on his desk.

Selig spearheaded the drive to bring baseball back to his hometown. The Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin in 1970 to become the Brewers.
