Apple has hired Toronto Blue Jays Assistant GM Jay Sartori as the manager of its App Store Sports and Entertainment Category, reports Sportsnet.
Sartori is taking over as the tech titan’s manager of the App Store’s sports and entertainment category, a departure from the arbitration, contract and collective bargaining agreement interpretation work he handled for the Blue Jays. He’s been in the position since September, 2010, when he was lured over from the Washington Nationals after a season as director of baseball operations there. Before that he worked for Major League Baseball’s labour department, helping negotiate the 2006 CBA.
Sartori is set to leave his current job next month.
