About the Book

A professional sports team owner (baseball, football, and basketball) meets with his general managers to discuss a highly acclaimed college athlete featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. His proficiency is in the three sports identified. When the owner becomes disgruntled with the fact that all three of his general managers want the athlete for their respective sport, he exclaims, “Why can’t we draft this kid for all three of my teams?” As the college senior competes in each sport during the year, a “due diligence” plan is prepared and successfully implemented to have the athlete drafted by all three professional teams. The three-sport star eventually agrees to sign a contract requiring him to be available as needed in the basis for each sport. He becomes an Athlete for Hire.
