Former MLB All-Star Turned Sports Agent
Vernon Wells, the former all-star center fielder, has decided to continue his career in the MLB but instead of playing on the field he will be representing players. In fact, Wells has decided to join The Legacy Agency, the firm that represented him throughout his career. Vernon Wells had a very successful career in the MLB appearing on three all-star teams, awarded three Golden Glove Awards, and one Silver Slugger Award. In addition to that Wells is second all-time for the Blue Jays in career hits, doubles, runs, RBI, and total bases and third in home runs.
Wells was selected by the Blue Jays in 1997 as the fifth overall pick but wasn’t until 2002 where Wells got the chance to be a full time player for the organization. Wells played for the Blue jays until 2010 before he was traded to the Los Angeles Angels. Wells played for the Angels for a year before he was traded to the Yankees where he ended his career after playing with the team for one year.
Wells passed his MLB certified agent exam a few months back and he will be involved in negotiating contracts for future clients the company recruits. If he is as good of an agent as he was a player he should have no problem being successful in this field.
