1992: MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent resigns after team owners, upset over his intervention during a 1990 lockout, dwindling TV ratings and climbing player salaries, give him an 18-9 no-confidence vote. He was replaced by Milwaukee Brewers owner Bud Selig on an interim basis, with Selig becoming permanent commissioner in 1998.
