NEW YORK (AP) Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says he met with Donald Trump for the first time, and the president-elect told him he is a ''great baseball fan.''

The 45-minute meeting Tuesday at Trump Tower was arranged by New York Yankees President Randy Levine.

Trump has been a frequent guest in the Yankee Stadium owners' box. Levine worked for Rudolph Giuliani, a prominent Trump supporter, when Giuliani was New York City mayor.

Manfred says in an email it was a ''really nice meeting.'' The commissioner adds that Trump ''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.''
