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.
