TONY PETITTI

Chief operating officer
Major League Baseball

A former executive with CBS, NBC and ABC, Petitti has a deep knowledge of the media business. One RSN executive described the relationship between MLB and its networks as being at a “high-water mark,” a position that was credited to the way Petitti deals with networks. The league office takes more of a laissez-faire approach when it comes to RSN deals, waiting for its legal department to weigh in on topics like fair market value. If negotiations hit a snag, Petitti will get involved.
