Dynasty Athlete Representation

It’s Going To Be A Long Sunday..

But at least I will be going into the day with a smile on my face. Dynasty now has its first client in an MLB organization. Dan Leatherman, the stud RHP who quickly became the #38 prospect for the Minnesota Twins before being cut with absolutely no explanation is back in MLB’s Minor League System. The Washington Nationals acquired Leatherman’s contract from the Winnipeg Goldeyes before he ever logged a single inning for the Northern League squad. He is on his way down to Melbourne, FL, where he will show the world the mistake that the Twins made by cutting him this past off-season.

While Leatherman is making his trip down to sunny Florida, I will be on the phone all day making calls to the intern applicants that still remain for Dynasty’s two Summer positions. Of over seventy initial applicants, nineteen remain. Eight out of the nineteen are current in law schools across the nation, two are President of their Sports and Entertainment organizations, and a couple maintained 4.0 GPAs throughout their undergrad education. Their resumes and cover letters got them to the second round. Today is show time.
