We know talent
when we see it


Meister Sports has been extremely successful at managing the draft process for young players. Our expertise is in our unique ability to spot Major League Talent early on.

In the last 14 years, we have represented 70 players in the MLB Draft. Of those players, 30 were top 100 picks, including 13 first-round selections.

Even better, of those players, 31 have reached the Major Leagues!

Given that it takes some time for players to reach the Majors, we expect our most recent crop of draftees to increase that number.
NOT INCLUDING OUR TWO MOST RECENT DRAFT CLASSES, PLAYERS THAT MEISTER SPORTS HAS REPRESENTED IN THE DRAFT HAVE REACHED THE MAJOR LEAGUES AT AN ASTONISHING 51%!
