Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (3/4/2011)

This Shabbat Shalom Friday Wrap-Up must start off with a special shout out to Dynasty Baseball Agent, Bryan Swalley.  We kept it quiet for quite a while, but Dynasty signed former Major League Baseball pitcher Randy Keisler months ago.  Ever since signing Keisler, Swalley has been advocating like crazy on behalf of Keisler.  Yesterday, Keisler signed a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers and will be reporting to Spring Training very soon.  We expect him to start in Triple A and hopefully make it back to the Majors sooner than later.  The Dodgers can definitely use Keisler’s left handed pitch in their rotation and/or bullpen.  I will be heading up to Jupiter tomorrow to make a visit to Dynasty’s newest client, Jaime Ortiz, who is in Triple A with the Marlins.  Baseball season is upon us!  Here are some stories I missed from the past week:

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
