NEW YORK (AP) — Given some time to reconsider, the San Diego Padres have voted in favor of baseball Commissioner Bud Selig’s two-year extension.

Selig’s latest agreement was finalized in a 30-0 vote, the commissioner’s office said Monday.

Because it was not on the agenda when owners met Jan. 12 in Arizona, unanimous consent was needed then for approval. San Diego owner John Moores, upset that the Padres’ sale to Jeff Moorad’s group was not approved, voted no.

Owners then decided to have a vote conducted by return ballot over 10 days, which fulfilled the notice requirement.

Selig has been in charge of baseball since September 1992. He turns 80 in July 2014 and would pass Kenesaw Mountain Landis in September 2016 as the longest-serving commissioner. His latest terms runs through Dec. 31, 2014.
