Bart Giamatti
Original name: Angelo Bartlett Giamatti
Birth: Apr. 4, 1938
Death: Sep. 1, 1989

Major League Baseball Commissioner, Educator. Born Angelo Bartlett Giamatti in Boston, Massachusetts, he was a professor of Comparative Literature at Yale University Connecticut and a master at Stiles College at Yale. In 1978, he was appointed the nineteenth President of Yale University, serving until 1986. He was the youngest President in the history of the University and presided over the University during a bitter strike by its clerical and technical workers in 1984 and 1985. He became President of the Baseball National League in 1986 and while in office, he placed an emphasis on the need to improve the environment for the fan in the ballparks. In September 1988, he was unanimously elected by Major League Baseball owners as the seventh Baseball Commissioner. He was determined to maintain the integrity of the game during his brief commissionership and became the second baseball commissioner to die in office. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
