Lessons About Handling Money

I have represented a few professional athletes over the years. Unfortunately, it is after they have lost their wealth, or failed to plan for the end of their professional sports careers. They have either lost their money, or spent it, and are forced to sue their former advisors, or to create new business opportunities. has a story based on an interview conducted by NerdWallet  with Eric Sogard, the bespectacled second baseman for the Oakland A’s (where his nickname is “Nerd Power”) and runner-up in an online poll of fans for the #FaceofMLB. Sogard spoke the skills he’s learned to handle money and what he’s doing to secure his financial future.
