Ex-MLB prez Dupuy finds two new jobs

BY Ken Rosenthal • February 7, 2011

Bob Dupuy, who resigned as baseball’s president and chief operating officer last October, is keeping busy.

Dupuy is teaching legal ethics at Cornell Law School and consulting baseball on the possible relocation of the Oakland A’s to San Jose.

On Monday, he added two more jobs, returning to his former law firm, Foley & Lardner, and accepting a position with Evolution Media Capital, a company owned in part by Creative Artists Agency.

DuPuy will be a partner within Foley’s sports-industry team in New York and a senior advisor at EMC.

CAA represents Derek Jeter, Ryan Howard, Roy Halladay and other baseball stars, but EMC performs different services and Dupuy is not entering the agent world.

EMC, according to its website, was “formed in June 2008 as a partnership with CAA to provide capital and advisory services to the media and sports industries.”

The company, the site says, “has an extensive track record in the sports industry, including close relationships with professional sports leagues and franchises and experience in structuring stadium and mergers and acquisitions transactions.”

One of those transactions involved representing the buyers of the Texas Rangers, a matter in which Dupuy played a central role while working for baseball. Dupuy will specialize in content rights and mergers and acquisitions, according to a company press release.

Dupuy, 63, served as baseball’s president and COO from March 7, 2002 until Oct. 31, 2010.
