Alas, he would not elaborate any further on what those policies might be.

Manfred also revealed that some sports data will be made exclusively to MGM and not shared with other establishments.

In light of reports that the MLB donated to the campaign of Mississippi Senate Republican candidate Cindi Hyde Smith, the Commissioner announced the league will now vet political donations.  Smith has come under fire for making insensitive comments ahead of Tuesday's special election.
