Mary Giesler joined the Twins in 2014 as its first general counsel. She provides legal counsel and oversight on all business-related matters and serves as the team’s liaison with Major League Baseball’s legal department.
Giesler led the Twins’ legal efforts in the public-private development of Target Field Station and the establishment of a new player-development academy in the Dominican Republic. With Covid-19 truncating the 2020 season, Giesler reworked agreements, resulting in mutually beneficial modifications and sustained relationships. In the past year, she has also negotiated significant affiliate transactions between Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball.
