MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred joined the Yahoo Finance All Markets Summit in New York on Wednesday.

You can watch his full interview in the video above.

Manfred spoke candidly on a wide range of topics, including his desire to increase the pace of play, steps to grow the game to younger fans, MLB Advanced Media and Disney’s $1 billion investment, and Manfred’s approach to leadership.

Perhaps most notably, Manfred discussed daily fantasy sports (MLB has an ownership stake in DraftKings) and the rising momentum around legalized sports betting. “We are reexamining our stance on gambling,” the commissioner said.
