Larry Lucchino

Larry Lucchino is currently a part owner, president and CEO of the Boston Red Sox. He is part of the ownership group that includes John Henry and Tom Werner.

 

Lucchino graduated from Princeton University in 1967, and later attended Yale Law School.

At Princeton, Lucchino, an athlete in his own right, was on the basketball team with Bill Bradley who later became an NBA star and United States Senator from New Jersey. After law school, Lucchino practiced law with the Washington, D. C. law firm of Williams & Connolly. The founder, famed litigator Edward Bennett Williams, had ownership interest in both the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Orioles. Lucchino's law practice at Williams & Connolly included a substantial amount of work for those two sports teams. Through that work he ultimately became President/CEO of the Baltimore Orioles and later, the San Diego Padres. Under his watch, both teams built new stadiums Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Petco Park. Lucchino is known for having initiated the trend of building baseball-only facilities with an old-fashioned charm and smaller seating capacities, as was accomplished when he conceived Camden Yards in the early 1990s. Since then, about one-half of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams built new stadiums with the old-style look and feel.
