At the All-Star Game press conference today, MLB commissioner Bud Selig told reporters that he has never sent an email, ever.
“I’ve never sent an email and I never will,” he said, according to Eric Fisher of Sports Business Journal.
Selig is nearly 79-years-old, and doesn’t have to learn how to send emails if he doesn’t want to.
Baseball has much bigger problems with modernity — the game’s lack of instant replay and long running times, for example — than email.
But this still doesn’t look great.
Selig is actually just one of a handful of notable sports figures who’ve gone on the record to say they don’t use email.
