Bud Selig repeatedly calls 2013 MLB Draft ‘2000’ draft (Video)

Bud Selig draftOld habits die hard. At least they do for Bud Selig.

The MLB commissioner announced three of the first eight picks of the 2013 first-year player draft as the “2000” draft. He even called it the 2000 first-year player draft for the first overall pick, which he had all year to rehearse.

“With the first selection of the 2000 first-year player draft, the Houston Astros select Mark Appel.”

Selig also repeated the mistake at No. 6 when he announced the Miami Marlins selected Colin Moran, and at No. 8 when the Kansas City Royals selected Hunter Dozier. And not on video — he did it when announcing the St. Louis Cardinals’ pick at No. 19.

Maybe Selig just had one of those mindblocks. As someone who has been on air before, I know how that can happen. Still, this was pretty funny.
