MLBAM also develops, deploys and distributes the highest-grossing sports app, At Bat, as well as manages live video content for dozens of sports, news and entertainment partners. It captures, encodes and distributes thousands of live video events annually and millions of streams consumed daily across hundreds of platforms.

1. Jeremy Braff, Software Architect
Jeremy Braff is a software architect for MLB Advanced Media. In this role, he has spearheaded the design and creation of a central API of sports data used by both internal teams and external partners. On top of that, he has worked on an analytics engine called StatCast which is used to evaluate the movement of athletes in real time during a game. The engine’s output provides fans and professional baseball teams with a novel way to assess a player’s abilities and skills that was previously impossible. As both a sports fan and a data nerd, Jeremy’s overarching goal is to make sports data easily accessible to all fans.
2. James Boehmer, Director of Search and Personalization
