Barring an agent from a training camp may come off as extreme, but not when the agent in consideration is one who once quit the profession after becoming the target in a murder-for-hire plot involving one of his clients (Mike Danton) and is still awaiting trial on sexual exploitation charges. I am talking about the same guy who a year later was arrested for using Danton’s credit card to purchase gas. Who would not want such a model citizen to be attending their training camp and recruiting their potential players?
The agent discussed in the preceding paragraph is David Frost, and he has been told to stay away from the Phoenix Coyotes training camp and Adam Keefe, who’s brother was once represented by Frost. The Coyotes organization has put out the word plain and clear: If Keefe is in any way connected to Frost, he will no longer be of interested to the Coyotes. No matter how angry the Pittsburgh Pirates organization may be with Scott Boras after the recent Pedro Alvarez dealings, I doubt that the club would ever blackball Boras in the way that the Coyotes have shunned Frost.
Even if Frost were allowed to go to training camp and talk to potential youngsters looking for representation, who in their right mind would hire a guy that has such a shady past and still has criminal charges pending?
