About UP: Laurence M. Baer, Bauccio 2013 Guest Lecturer
In April, 2013, San Francisco Giants president and CEO, Laurence M. Baer spoke as the Bauccio guest lecturer. Larry Baer is known as one of professional sports' leading visionaries. Under his direction, the San Francisco Giants opened Pacific Bell Park to widespread acclaim in 2000, won baseball's World Series twice (2010 and 2012), and are one of only four teams to have exceeded 3 million in attendance for eight consecutive years (2000-07). The Giants are also the standard bearer in baseball for sponsorship revenue. Baer, who oversees all aspects of the organization, has been a key strategist since 1992 when he was appointed executive vice president. He became COO in 1996, team president in 2008, and CEO in 2012. To view Larry Baer's lecture, click here.
