When Rob Manfred received the required three-fourths vote of Major League Baseball’s owners votes, he officially took the throne as one of the four most important men in sports. Welcome to the commissioner’s chair, Mr. Manfred – fix this great game. Enough about you. Lets meet Rob Manfred’s wife Colleen Manfred.
After she attended Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills, MI, Colleen met future husband Rob Manfred while attending Le Moyne College. Rob attended the school for two years before transferring to Cornell, whereas Colleen graduated from the school in 1980. Rob was ultimately given an honorary degree from Le Moyne in 2010. She later moved on to obtain and MBA from George Washington University. Rob and Colleen Manfred (formerly Colleen Feely) have four grown children, Megan, Mike, Jane, and Mary. The Manfred’s currently reside in Tarrytown, New York – but no word if the new gig as commish of the greatest game on earth will require relocation.
The Manfred’s have done a great job minimizing their social media exposure, which is probably the right move for a sitting commissioner. Outside a couple of marriage notices for their children, there isn’t a ton known about the Manfred family of six. One of the concerns lobbed about Manfred was his parallels to Selig in his discomfort with the public spotlight. IN this day and age of constant exposure, it will be interesting to watch the evolution of the man ruling a game in desperate need of some polish and modernization. Congratulations,… and good luck to Rob Manfred – You have your work cut out for you.
