From Ballpark Digest on May 2, 2018, on SABR member Rob Neyer:

The summer collegiate West Coast League has added a commissioner to its leadership structure, naming former ESPN and Fox Sports journalist Rob Neyer to the position. The appointment is effective immediately. 

Neyer is the league’s first commissioner since ABCA Hall of Fame head coach Jim Dietz of San Diego State presided over the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League, during the circuit’s formative years.

“We are thrilled to have Rob Neyer represent the West Coast League and act as our league’s commissioner,” said WCL president Tony Bonacci. “His knowledge of the game and passion for what we are doing, not to mention his contacts in baseball, should help us elevate the league to new heights.”

“We can’t be more pleased that Rob has joined us as our commissioner.”
