Rob Manfred's time in the commissioner's office has an end date.

The Major League Baseball head confirmed on Thursday that he will step down at the end of his current contract on Jan. 25, 2029.

Manfred, 65, is set to embark on his 10th season as commissioner and is set to make his exit after his 14th season.

A native of Rome, NY, Manfred succeeded Bud Selig as commissioner in 2015, edging out Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and MLB executive Tim Brosnan for the job. 

Manfred first joined Major League Baseball on a full-time basis in 1998 as Executive Vice President of Economics and League Affairs.

More to come.
