BALTIMORE (AP) - Major League owners have given Rob Manfred the keys to the sport.

Manfred has been elected baseball's 10th commissioner and will succeed Bud Selig in January.

Manfred is a labor lawyer who has worked for Major League Baseball since 1998. He beat out Boston Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner in the first contested vote for a new commissioner in 46 years.

The 55-year-old, who grew up in Rome, New York, must address issues that include decreased youth interest and the longer games. He has served as MLB's chief operating officer for the past year.

The 80-year-old Selig and has ruled baseball since September 1992, when he was among the owners who forced Commissioner Fay Vincent's resignation.
