Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/4/2011)

Next Wednesday (February 9) is my birthday, when I will officially turn 26-years-young.  I will be on a flight during the day, and arrive in New Orleans on time to attend a reception for the Tulane Baseball Arbitration Competition.  Thereafter, I will certainly celebrate at the bars.  If you are in New Orleans, come find me!  Arbitration Competition competitors have no fear, I will be quite awake and sober in time to judge your briefs and presentations the following two days.  The weekend will culminate in two fantastic panels, which are part of a mini-symposium.  I have the honor of moderating a panel composed of Jorge Arangure Jr., Senior Writer, ESPN The Magazine, David P. Fidler, Co-author, Stealing Lives: The Globalization of Baseball and the Tragic Story of Alexis Quiroz, and Fernando Tamayo, former International Scouting Coordinator for the Boston Red Sox.  I will attempt to live-stream it.  Here are some items I missed over the past week:

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.
