Commissioner Bud Selig made up his mind very quickly, less than a week after Major League Baseball took over control of the Los Angeles Dodgers from owner Frank McCourt.

The choice is former Texas Rangers president J. Thomas Schieffer. The former United States Ambassacor to Japan, is the younger brother of Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer, and will take over the club immediately.

The 63-year-old Fort Worth, Texas native invested in a group headed by former President George W. Bush that bought the Rangers in 1989 and was team president from January 1991 until April 1999.
