B’nai B’rith International honored Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig with the Distinguished Humanitarian Award on Thursday in New York. The award recognizes efforts to help a local community or the world in a person’s personal or professional life.

Selig has led Major League Baseball for more than two decades while also supporting cancer research and environmental and educational activism. “We are not honoring the commissioner here today for his corporate achievements, we are honoring him for his deep commitment and tireless efforts that have touched millions of Americans,” B’nai B’rith International President Allan J. Jacobs said.

The Jewish group presented Selig with a tzedakah box and a jersey with “B’nai B’rith” emblazoned on the front…more.
