All these guys are really eager to join the athlete illuminati, huh?
Jay Z Signs New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia To Roc Nation Sports
Roc Nation Sports, the sports agency started by Jay Z, has signed New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and will represent him on and off the field.
“CC exemplifies everything Roc Nation looks for in an athlete and a partner,” Roc Nation Sports president Juan Perez said in a statement.
Sabathia, 33, has at least three years left on his contract, which comes with a guaranteed $76 million. But when contract conversations do come up, which won’t take place until before the 2017 season at the earliest, Roc Nation spokesman Ron Berkowitz said Jay Z and Perez plan on negotiating the pitcher’s deal.
Sabathia has an endorsement deal with the Jordan brand, and in the past couple of years has done commercials for both Pepsi and Subway.
Sabathia had been with the firm now known as Legacy Sports Group his entire career.
This thing is going a helluva lot better than folks thought it would, including us.
