Peter Ueberroth is an American business executive who has a net worth of $100 million. Peter Ueberroth is probably most famous for being the recent chairman of the United States Olympic Committee and the sixth Commissioner of the MLB. He began his career as the Vice President and shareholder of Trans International Airlines and as founder of the First Travel Corporation which he sold in 1980. He then became the organizer of the 1984 Summer Olympics and was given the title of Man of the Year by Time Magazine as well as receiving the Olympic Order in gold. As baseball Commissioner Ueberroth settled many labor disputes with the team players and Major League Umpires Association. During his first year as Baseball Commissioner he expanded the League Championship Series from best of five to best of seven and found a way to get large companies to sponsor the MLB by having the players endorse their products. In 1989 Ueberroth stepped down as commissioner because of his bringing about a secretive agreement between the owners and not allowing players to become free agents, as well as cutting player salaries. But during his time as commissioner for the MLB there were many improvements, including anti-drug campaigns, alcohol and crowd control, record attendance and financial improvement. After Ueberroth left his position as Commissioner of the MLB he purchased the Pebble Beach golf course and became part owner with Clint Eastwood and Arnold Palmer.
