Fay Vincent served as Major League Baseball’s eighth commissioner from 1989 to 1992, a history-making period that included a World Series that was interrupted by an earthquake, an owners’ lockout and the (temporary) expulsion of George Steinbrenner.
His service to baseball continued long after he left the commissioner’s office. He was president of the New England Collegiate Baseball League until 2004. In the years before joining Major League Baseball, he was an attorney with a New York law firm, a securities regulator in Washington, D.C., president and CEO of Columbia Pictures, and executive vice president of the Coca-Cola Company.
Vincent has strong Connecticut ties. He was born in Waterbury, attended the Hotchkiss School, and graduated from Yale Law School after getting his bachelor's degree from Williams College.
