Mike MooreMike Moore, the president of Minor League Baseball has announced that he will be stepping down after 16 years as the head of MiLB when his term runs out in December.

During his four terms, Minor League Baseball established national marketing and licensing programs, franchise values increased dramatically and attendance soared to record heights, setting all-time marks in the last three consecutive seasons, reaching 41.7-million in 2006.

A statement from Moore reads:

"The past 16 years our industry has made great progress in many areas. This progress was achieved through the results of the cooperative efforts of many outstanding people who have served on the BOT and the COLP, plus the talented and hard-working contributions of the Minor League Staff.

"I have enjoyed being a part of this historic period in Minor League Baseball and working closely with those mentioned above.

"As I approach my 67th birthday and face a number of health issues, which have limited my activities, I find that I cannot continue to devote the same time and effort toward future goals.

"It is, therefore, with thanks to all who have provided friendship and help over the years toward our common efforts, I officially inform you that I will not seek re-election following this final year of my current term.

"I will continue to provide and contribute any assistance possible to Minor League Baseball following the end of my current term."
