“Tim Leiweke is one of the top sports executives in the world, renowned for his ability to build championship teams, premier entertainment events, and innovative brand and marketing opportunities,” said MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum in a release. “Tim is a leader who understands what fans want and what it takes to build winners.
