Starting in the legal department at MLB Properties working on licensing matters, Sylvia moved on to the Commissioner’s Office where she spent several years as Director of Minor League Operations, overseeing the Clubs’ player development efforts and the relationship between the Major and Minor Leagues. She led the General Managers Player Development Committee and was co-creator of the annual All-Star Futures Game, as well as the Civil Rights Game.
