Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Hall of Famer Duke Snider at the age of 84:

"Duke Snider was a great human being, an extraordinary Hall of Fame player and an integral part of Dodger history, winning the World Series in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles. He was a key player during a special era in baseball, joining Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle to form New York City's unparalleled triumvirate of center fielders - Willie, Mickey and The Duke. Then the Los Angeles native went home and helped usher in a new part of baseball history with great class.

"I have many fond memories of watching Duke play, and I will be forever grateful for getting to know him well in the ensuing years. I extend my deepest condolences to Duke's family, friends and all the Dodger fans."
