Tom Werner ‘disappointed’ after commissioner vote

BALTIMORE — Red Sox chairman Tom Werner emerged from a crowded owners’ room at the Hyatt Regency at about 6 p.m. Thursday and said he was pressed for time because he wanted to return to Fenway Park for a party for his daughter, who is getting married in two days.

Werner, 64, interviewed for two days to become the next commissioner of Major League Baseball, but in the end, Bud Selig’s right-hand man for many years, Rob Manfred, 55, prevailed with a unanimous 30-0 decision after a closed-door meeting among owners.
