New York Yankees president Randy Levine and MLB commissioner Rob Manfred met with President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday in New York, according to the New York Daily News' Christian Red.
Levine has been a longtime Trump supporter and is reportedly hosting a fundraiser with Trump's brother in upstate New York later in January, a presisdent-elect pool reporter told Sports Business Journal's John Ourand.
The meeting was "nothing more than a meet-and-greet between the baseball commissioner and the soon-to-be leader of the free world," according to Red.
"I had a really nice meeting with the president-elect," Manfred said to Red. "He explained to me his history with the game and what a great baseball fan he is, and we are glad that we had an opportunity to get together before his inauguration."
