John Powers: Guest Blogger

We are excited to have Attorney John M. Powers, Jr. guest blog this week. Like Rick Karcher, John brings pro baseball experience to his analysis of sports law. After being named the Pac-10 Conference All-Southern second baseman while a senior at the University of Arizona, John was drafted by San Diego Padres in the 21st round of the June 1996 MLB Draft. Over the next eight years, John would play in the Padres, Chicago Cubs, and Texas Rangers organizations and was named a Double A All Star in 1998. He also excelled off the field, winning the San Diego Padres Community Service Award for his work with underprivileged youth. Perhaps most impressively, John somehow found the time to obtain a J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law during his pro baseball career. He last played pro ball in 2003, when he was with the Triple A Oklahoma Redhawks, an affiliate of the Texas Rangers. John now practices real estate law at The Henderson Law Firm in Phoenix, Arizona. We look forward to his posts.
