Welcome to a new episode of Office Hours: a podcast with Front Office Sports CEO Adam White and figures from the sports industry. This season is focused on athletes, both current and retired, who have found success in business endeavors off the field.
On today’s episode, we’re joined by MLB All-Star pitcher, Cincinnati Reds ace, and entrepreneur Trevor Bauer. In August, Bauer set a Reds record with 41 strikeouts in just four starts. Dominating on the field, Bauer hopes to do the same off of it.
As someone who has “done things differently” his entire life, Bauer is bullish on the future of Momentum, the athlete-centric media company he started in 2019, the positive steps Major League Baseball and players have made on social media, and a new model he believes to be the future of how agents do business.
