MLBAM CEO Bob Bowman may run for governor of Michigan

Feb 11, 2010, 4:50 PM EST

Bob Bowman has been the CEO of Major League Baseball Advanced Media since its inception.  It’s been a fabulous success, and Bowman has deservedly received kudos for it. He may be looking for a new job, however:

An official in Major League Baseball has formed a committee to explore a run for Michigan’s Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

Robert Bowman is a former Michigan state treasurer and currently the
chief executive of baseball’s online and interactive media operation.
He filed the political paperwork Thursday with the Michigan secretary
of state.

You’ll know how serious he is about running based on the number of negative articles you see about the Tigers on MLB.com this summer.
