Bud Selig Does Something Cool


Bud Selig gets a lot of grief on this site, all with good reason, but for once he’s done something pretty worthwhile. After purchasing the house next to his, intending to tear it down and build a garden there, Selig has offered up the use of the house to several area groups.

School officials from the Milwaukee Area Technical College are expected to bring in about 30 carpentry students to practice on the soon-to-be-razed house. They will get two days to do such exciting things such as remove and install cabinetry, windows, casings and trim, and disconnect plumbing to sinks and vanities.

That’s not all, Selig has also offered the home as a training location for the local police department who are interested in using it for training how to enter a home with a burglar inside. Those exercises would likely use paintball guns and are expected to take place during the beginning of May.

After that, the fire department is slated to get a chance to have a go-round in Selig’s fun-time mansion, that is of course until he turns an entire house into an extravagant garden.

    so let me get this straight? instead of sitting on a most likely expensive, but apparently undevelopable parcel of land, bud is going to take one for the community by creating a huge tax write off for himself. essentially, he is now not paying for the demolition of the house. in fact, he’s probably making money.

    what a philanthropist. bug selig, ladies and gentlemen…

      hey, tax breaks are great, but not as great as shooting paintball guns inside the house of Bud Selig, even if he is going to demolish it.
      Also, this is Milwaukee, so, the house isn’t THAT valuable, Bud makes like $15 mill a season, and this house he’s demolishing was valued at $585,700 for the house and land. Selig’s actual house is assessed at $1.2 million with the house alone at $969,300.

      fucking milwaukee man, shit is dirt cheap there! in NYC that wouldn’t get you a studio apartment
