Scott Boras Corporation
Year Graduated: 1982
Scott Boras, '82, is the premier agent in professional baseball. A former minor league outfielder, he has been described as the person who has had the most profound impact on the $6 billion-a-year business in the past quarter-century. After a brief legal career in medical litigation, Boras represented a former minor league teammate, launching his career as a super agent. Operating out of Newport Beach, California, the Scott Boras Corporation represents more than 60 major leaguers, including many of the game's highest-paid players. He negotiated a 10-year, $252 million contract for current Yankees' infielder Alex Rodriguez, the most expensive contract per year in American professional sports. He negotiated a seven-year, $126 million deal with the San Francisco Giants for client Barry Zito, making the lefthander, for a time, the highest-paid pitcher ever.
