Octagon Baseball Adds Ex MLB Player Chad Tracy To Its Staff
Former MLB player, Chad Tracy, retired this past April after stints with the Chicago Cubs, Arizona Diamondbacks, Florida Marlins and the Washington Nationals. Tracy finished his career with 86 HR, 358 RBI and a .274 BA over 938 games.
However, the 34-year-old Charlotte, North Carolina native is still staying connected to the game he loves.
Tracy joined Octagon Baseball earlier this week, the same sports agency which represented him throughout his career. He’ll advise Octagon’s next generation of players and is in the process of gaining certification as an agent.
“I joined Octagon after my playing career because I felt that I could be an asset to any player, albeit from the amateur ranks to the Big Leagues,” Tracy said. “I have been in these guys’ shoes already and have been fortunate enough to have lived the life and gained the experience and knowledge of having a 14-year professional career, nine of those being in the Big Leagues.”
In mid-September, Forbes listed Octagon as having the world’s seventh most valuable baseball division. Tracy will be tasked with leveraging his current baseball relationships in order to benefit the division as a whole heading into 2015.
“My plans for the baseball division going forward are to help our clients strictly focus on the game of baseball with no distractions,” Tracy said. “I feel that I have already experienced many of the challenges of making it to the Big Leagues, and even harder, staying in the Big Leagues. I have been fortunate enough to build many relationships within the game that could prove valuable to any future client and Octagon.”
