Come hear Jeff Berry, OCU JD cum laude ’98, who is a Co-Head of CAA Sports’ Baseball division and has been a sports agent since 1998. CAA has been named Sports Agency of the Year by Sports Business Journal the past three years. CAA Sports’ clients have participated in 53 All-Star games and won 14 Silver Slugger Awards, 11 Gold Gloves, four Rookie of the Year Awards, two Cy Young Awards and an MVP Trophy. CAA Sports represents 54 first-round draft selections and has negotiated more than $100 million in amateur-draft signing bonuses.
Among others, Jeff represents MLB All-Stars Mark Buehrle (White Sox), Chris Young (Diamondbacks) and Corey Hart (Brewers) and 2010 NL Rookie of the Year Buster Posey (Giants) along with Joe Blanton (Phillies), John Danks (White Sox) and Mark Teahen (Blue Jays).
Jeff played a critical role in the blockbuster trade and subsequent contract extension for Roy Halladay when Halladay was traded from the Blue Jays to the Phillies in December 2009. In 2008, Jeff negotiated the largest signing bonus in baseball draft history, Posey’s $6.2 million deal with San Francisco.
Jeff played baseball at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and spent one season as a catcher in the Red Sox organization. Following his playing career, Jeff was a Graduate Assistant Baseball Coach at Oklahoma City University from 1995-1998. While at OCU, he earned his Juris Doctor from the University’s School of Law, graduating cum laude in May 1998. Jeff is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association and a certified player agent with the Major League Baseball Players Association.
