Selig critical of film produced by Valentine


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has spoken to the Boston Red Sox with complaints over a film Bobby Valentine produced about Dominican prospects.

"Ballplayer: Pelotero," a documentary that tracks corruption in the process of signing Dominican amateur prospects, opens Friday.

"I expressed our concerns to Red Sox ownership and that was it. What they did from there is up to them," Selig said Tuesday. "There were a lot of things that were inaccurate."

MLB says many of the issues have been rectified since the 2009, the period covered by the film.

Valentine, in his first season as Red Sox manager, said he did not think he will respond.
