Former MLB Reliever Braden Looper Now An Agent With Hendricks Sports Management

Former Major League Baseball pitcher Braden Looper had a very solid career.  The reliever from Wichita State University played for four different MLB teams in his 11 year stint.  Throughout those 11 years, Looper was represented by Randy Hendricks and Alan Hendricks of Hendricks Sports Management.  While Looper has officially hung up his cleats, he has not parted ways with the Hendricks brothers.  If anything, Looper is even closer to the duo than he was when he was throwing from the mound.

Looper is now a sports agent, working with the gentlemen who helped him manage his career.  Randy and Alan Hendricks have made Looper a part of Hendricks Sports Management.  Looper can certainly help in the advising of players, being a former high draft pick (#3 overall in 1996) himself.  Having two World Series rings (2003 and 2006) also does not hurt on the recruiting trail.
