Larry Baer SF Giants CEO Has Led The Team He Loves To Unprecedented Success

The San Francisco Giants are one of America’s most storied sports franchises. Throughout the centuries some of the greatest people to ever play the game have worn the black and orange. Additionally, some of the best executives in baseball history have led the Giants to success both on and off the field. Current SF Giants CEO, Larry Baer looks to continue this line of success and take the Giants to even greater heights than they have experienced before.

Larry M. Baer is a native San Franciscan who, before officially joining the Giants, helped to lead a successful effort to prevent the Giants from leaving San Francisco. In 2012 he was promoted to president and CEO, and the Giants won their second World Series title in three seasons.

In his position as SF Giants CEO, Larry Baer is responsible for the everyday operations of the franchise. He interacts with Major League Baseball and other MLB teams, and he must be conscious of every aspect of the business side of running a ball club.

He spearheaded the initiative to build AT&T Park, which is the first privately funded park in the MLB. He has also overseen an explosion in attendance in which the team completely sold out every home game from the 2011 season to the 2016 season.

Of course, the Giants CEO is also involved in the product on the field. He plays an integral role in developing new talent, signing free agents, and re-signing proven performers.

Baseball executives throughout the league look at the Giants CEO’s path to success as a blueprint for success in the industry. His pedigree is impressive to be sure, he excelled at the University of California and Harvard Business school, but the key to his success may be his love for his city, his team, and the Giants’ faithful fans.
