Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (1/15/2010)

Nice to be done with the first week of my last semester of law school.  Surprisingly, this past semester was my strongest as far as grades are concerned.  I am happy to announce that Pete Parise is my first client to make Major League Spring Training.  Pete is a guy who can bring a lot of added value to the Cardinals bullpen.  We hope he gets his shot in the Majors this year.  Our other baseball guys are busy training leading up to the start of the 2010 season.  This will be a very big year for Dynasty Baseball.  It has been ridiculously cold in Gainesville over the past week, but the temperature finally seems to be warming up a bit.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

Sports Agents

Sports Business




By Darren Heitner

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.
