Baseball agency Beverly Hills Sports Council has announced a new headquarters located in Santa Monica. Partners Rick Thurman and Dan Horwits have also announced that there have been changes to the senior management of the company, which recently celebrated its 30th year representing baseball players.
Founded in 1984, BHSC also has offices in Scottsdale, Tampa, Miami and the Dominican Republic. Founding partner Rick Thurman said in a statement about the new Santa Monica location, “With the convergence of sports, technology and the entertainment industry, we thought it to be prudent to be in an area where our clients could benefit from having access to many businesses involved in these exciting industries in the digital technology space.”
In its history, BHSC has represented stars like George Brett, Barry Bonds, Trevor Hoffman, and currently has All-Stars Tim Lincecum, Hunter Pence, Jason Kipnis, Chris Tillman, and Dee Gordon among its list of clients, and has a growing roster of Latin players, headlined by Salvador Perez, Gregory Polanco and Francisco Cervelli.
BHSC also officially restructured its management on January 1, 2015 with agent Jeff Borris exiting the firm. Borris had previously been a partner at the firm. Thurman and Horwits will continue to be supported by MLBPA-certified agents Nate Heisler , Mark Leinweaver, Rafael Nieves, Steve Rath, and Dennis Wyrick.
