Summer Mailbag: Advice to break into sports industry; Why Tatis and De La Cruz signed with BLA

Welcome to the Summer Mailbag Series! Let’s start with a question about some college advice. Someone asked for advice to a college sophomore that was interested in sports administration. Do teams have insurance coverage on players? Does insurance cover all expenses on an injured player? What about Fernando Tatis Jr and his suspension or motorcycle accident? Elly De La Cruz first home run ball was caught by a young fan. The kid held out for a trade. He got meet and greets, signed baseballs, signed hats, signed bat. Was that good enough? What is Big League Advantage? Why do players sign up for this? Is it worth it?
