DE PERE, Wis. (AP) -- Bud Selig will be the commencement speaker at St. Norbert College this month, and the Major League baseball commissioner will also receive an honorary degree.
About 460 students will be graduating at the May 12 commencement ceremonies. That's where Selig will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws degree for his contributions to baseball, St. Norbert and the community.
Selig was a previous owner of the Milwaukee Brewers. He has been the baseball commissioner since 1998.
The college also plans to recognize its eight surviving alumni who have earned the rank of general in the U.S. military. The alumni include graduates from the Class of 1942 through the Class of 1979.
