MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Describes His Journey To Baseball’s Top Position - Fortune

You can hear about Manfred in a series of podcasts at the link.

Manfred’s entry to the sport, as he describes it, was a fluke. After doing well on a pension case — “one of the driest areas of law that you can imagine,” Manfred said — he got rewarded with a more compelling baseball assignment, and eventually joined the league as EVP for labor relations and HR in 1998.
