"Commissioner of Baseball for the British Isles," A Nomination

About the Project:
"I've been trying to persuade a friend of mine, an American long resident in Britain, currently principal of a university, that he should accept my nomination that he be the first Commissioner of Baseball for the British Isles, even if no teams exist; but he doesn't get that he'd thereby be putting a frame around something than ought to exist, if only because someone in his position framed it, which he would head if it did exist, but for now his assuming such a title would be, of course, the epitome of Conceptual Art. Also less work."
--Richard Kostelanetz
