It may officially be Spring Break, but this week has been no break for me. Between visiting clients at Spring Training facilities and meeting with parents of potential future advisees, along with a bunch of other business related tasks, I sure have been able to keep myself busy during what has been a relaxing week in past years. But no complaints! Work hard and play hard. And while I am busting my butt, I still make sure to find time to enjoy myself with friends and family. I will be speaking on a couple of panels at the St. Thomas Entertainment And Sports Law Society Symposium tomorrow. If you are in South Florida, come on by! Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- A battle between Jose Julio Ruiz and his former agent, Jorge Luis Toca [Ruiz, Ex-Agent Clash Over Split].
- Pretty pointless, but could prevent future long negotiations if both sides are content [Are Mutual Options Baseball’s New Fad?].
- Mike Lupica mostly targets Scott Boras [With controversial doctors like Tony Galea, sports agents seem to walk away without fault].
- Always good to recognize the great things that host families do for players [The next Giants’ prospect could be staying in your guest room].
- Really interesting to see how the holding may affect New Era hats in baseball [Practical Effects of American Needle v. NFL on a Minor League Baseball Team].
- Is the answer really more scholarships? [Hunter was wrong, but had valid point].
- Has NCAA bylaw 126.96.36.199 helped create a new agent selection counseling industry? [The Wild Card – 12.3.4, USC, and You]
- CAA may quickly attain the most successful coaching division in the industry [Wesley to become rep for coaches].
