Glass walls abound in the four sprawling fours of offices, housed in New York Cityís Chelsea Market, the site of a former Nabisco factory in Manhattan. Banks of cubicles with an army of twentysomething video editors and game loggers prepare highlights and information for MLBís Web properties and apps. A huge, unnecessary metal dome sitting in the middle of one floor seems to serve as a conference room. Despite the baseball artwork on the walls and the company softball trophies in the reception area, thereís no mistaking it: This isnít a sports company. This is a tech company.
This is a good read on MLBAM -- which, if you aren't familiar, does a lot more than just baseball. MLBAM took in an estimated $500m in revenue last year alone (a pot that is shared equally by all 30 teams), and they're constantly looking to expand what they offer.
