CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Selig's retirement will become official in January of 2015.

Selig took office on an interim basis in 1992 after baseball's owners voted Fay Vincent out of office. His "acting commissioner" tag stayed in place for six years, though, until he was permanently installed into the position in 1998.
