The discussion, titled "Building a Champion: A Conversation With Larry Lucchino and Wyc Grousbeck," will be moderated by Gary Walters, Princeton's director of athletics.
Lucchino, a 1967 graduate, is the president and chief executive officer and a member of the ownership group of the Boston Red Sox, who won baseball's World Series in 2004 and 2007. Lucchino also has served as president and CEO of the Baltimore Orioles and the San Diego Padres.
Grousbeck, a member of the class of 1983, led an investment group that purchased the Boston Celtics in 2002. He serves as managing partner, governor and CEO of the Celtics, who won the 2007-08 National Basketball Association title. Grousbeck previously was a general partner of Highland Capital Partners, a venture capital firm.
The event is part of the Jake McCandless Speaker Series sponsored by the Princeton Varsity Club.
