A Sports Takeover

Founded by former Houston Astros manager, Dusty Baker; former New York Mets, and Baltimore Orioles general manager, Jim Duquette; and more  — Turn2 is committed to the ambitions that media and technology bring from an investment perspective.

“BD’s ingenuity, leadership qualities, and competitive drive are the reasons he’s poised not only to win big, but to make that the case for those in his company,” said Turn2 executive and former MLB Advanced Media Executive Vice President Dinn Mann. “Just as much, how he’s wired, his track record and life experiences serve as a bold, informed runway to our futures.”
