President & CEO
Major League Baseball Advanced Media
Bob Bowman joined Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) as its first president and chief executive officer in 2000, following two years of work in the Internet space.
MLBAM, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, was created in June 2000, when the owners of the 30 professional baseball teams voted to follow the recommendation of Commissioner Bud Selig and centralize all of baseball’s Internet and interactive media operations under one roof. MLBAM operates the official League site, www.MLB.com, as well as each of the 30 individual team sites. It also develops, deploys and distributes the highest-grossing iOS app, AtBat, and manages live video content for dozens of clients. In 2012, MLBAM captured, encoded and distributed nearly 18,000 live video events.
An early cellphone user, Bowman had one giant phone that he carried during his days as Michigan state treasurer, and another mounted in his classic Blue Chevy Cavalier. He wonders if he was the only person to turn down an investment in both Netscape and AOL in the same year (1995).
