(CBS News) -- After more than two decades at the helm of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig has retired as the game’s commissioner. In his first interview since stepping down, Selig looks back on a sport that has enjoyed economic expansion and endured great controversy, reports “CBS This Morning” co-host Charlie Rose.

Bud Selig’s first day in retirement began with a return to his roots. Growing up in Milwaukee, he was a Yankee fan.

“When I was 10, 12, 14, 15 years old I really thought I was going to be the heir apparent to Joe DiMaggio. I would play center field,” Selig said. “By the age of 14, a young man threw me a curveball, and that was it. I knew then that my career was over at a very, very early age.”

Instead, Selig sought to become a league owner at 30 years old; ultimately bringing a bankrupt Seattle expansion team to Milwaukee after a six-year effort.
