There are many costs for baseball agents. It costs money to subscribe to scouting services, travel across the country to recruit players, travel across the country to visit current clients, and supply clients with equipment (your guys are making very little money while in the Minors). While not all clients will ask you to help them with the cost of their equipment, many top prospects will demand it. At Dynasty, we have been able to create strong bonds with various equipment manufacturers. Those relationships benefit our clients and allow us to appropriate our funds to other important areas, listed above.
One company that has been particularly generous to Dynasty is America’s Bat Company. The first step in building a relationship with the company was to have our clients test out their products. It is important that new relationships are built with an understand of the quality of product being exchanged. America’s Bat Company was willing to send many of our position players with a free bat (maple or ash – the choice of our players) to see if they enjoy the product. Our boys just received their bats and will be testing them out now and in Spring Training.
What I really enjoy about America’s Bat Company are their competitive pricing and immense number of options. There are a lot of models to choose from and multiple colors for each bat.
I hope that our clients enjoy the bats that have been provided to them. We have some very talented position players and we are in talks to bring a few more guys into the fold. I will report back with what our guys think of the product and hopefully will be able to announce some individual player deals with America’s Bat Company in the future. At this point, I already heard from Tommy Johnson, who revealed that he is enjoying the bat he received.
