MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig insists he will retire after the 2014 season when his contract ends.

Selig was at Target Field on Tuesday for a celebration of MLB’s Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program. He said “nobody believes it” but he’ll be done in 2½ years, despite sentiment he’ll stay until 2016 to pass Kenesaw Mountain Landis as the game’s longest-serving boss.

Selig has been in charge of MLB since 1992, first as an interim commissioner and then permanently in 1998. The 78-year-old says he loves teaching and wants to write a book, so his time to quit will soon come.

Selig also said the site of the 2014 All-Star game, which the Twins are all but certain to host, will be announced soon, perhaps in August.
