These are the foundational building blocks of Pro Star Management Inc., founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in August, 1986, by Joe Bick, a respected and seasoned veteran in the baseball industry. A family-owned and operated firm, Pro Star has focused exclusively on the needs of professional baseball players since its inception, earning an unblemished reputation and respect in the game among clients, their families, team executives and members of the media.

The select group of players who elect to become Pro Star clients take comfort in knowing their all-important, individual career decisions are based on, and guided by, people dedicated to one goal…helping them to make the right decisions. This comfort comes from assurance that all elements concerning each decision have been thoroughly investigated, researched and discussed before any negotiations take place. Pro Star Management clients also know the Pro Star team is fully committed to their pledge of honesty and integrity, and doing what is the absolute best for each individual. This not only pertains to maximizing client value and success, but also includes upholding the player’s reputation, keeping in mind how he is perceived by his organization, community and fans.

This is the Pro Star philosophy: Be extremely well-prepared. Always be an upstanding individual. Take pride in your work…care about what you do and how it reflects upon you. Provide outstanding, personal service. Always work hard to be the best.

We understand that the Pro Star philosophy and approach to representing athletes is not the only one out there, and it isn’t for everybody. However, if you are an outstanding player who's fully devoted to maximizing your career potential in a first-class manner, then please contact us. It could be the best career decision you make.
