San Francisco Giants President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Baer will join the Sacramento Press Club’s next luncheon August 29 in a conversation with Sacramento Bee Columnist Marcos Breton about the art and business of baseball. Baer, a fourth generation San Franciscan, has been responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Giants organization since 2008. He started with the Giants as marketing director in 1980 after earning Phi Beta Kappa honors at the University of California. Baer left the organization for a few years to attend Harvard Business School at work at Westinghouse Broadcasting and CBS Inc., but returned in 1992. He guides both the business and baseball sides of the team. When he’s not at the ball park he serves on several local boards of directors including KQED, the Bay Area Council, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pacific Region. Baer is also chairman of Major League Baseball’s Long-Range Strategic Planning Committee.
Marcos Breton is a news columnist with the Sacramento Bee. He has been a working journalist in California for 30 years and is a graduate of San Jose State University. Starting out as a general assignment reporter, Breton was a sports columnist before returning to news in 2007. He is a voter for the Baseball Hall of Fame and the author of two baseball books.
