“Steve was my agent for every one of 13 seasons in the major leagues with eight different clubs. During that time, I came to know many general managers and assistant GM’s, and every one of them had nothing but praise for the way Steve represented me. He fought for me every step of the way and he always made a difference on my behalf. I truly believe I would not have been in better hands with anyone else. Steve was outstanding for both my career and for my family, and I’m proud to call him my friend." - Gary Bennett

“My relationship with Steve Schneider goes back to my rookie year with the Dodgers in 1973. Since then, Steve has been my agent, my adviser and, most importantly, my friend. Steve became my agent at a time when very few players had representation and even fewer had a talented and experienced advocate in their corner.

 

Steve is an outstanding and experienced attorney and one of the most talented attorneys in the business. His expertise was indispensable to me in being the first player to win at arbitration case against the Dodgers and also negotiating lucrative multi-year contracts with the Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs over my 15-year major league career. Steve continues to represent me in my personal life and professional business matters with the same commitment and creativity. There is no one I trust more.” - Ron Cey

“When choosing an agent, I wanted someone professional, experienced and more importantly someone who is trustworthy. Steve was recommended to me by a teammate who was also a client of his, and after our first meeting I knew Elite Sports Group was the agency I wanted to represent me. Steve’s relationships with multiple MLB organizations have definitely helped me throughout my career. Steve started out my agent and evolved to being my good friend. Over the years, Steve has visited me and my family, participated in charity events that I directed, and even traveled across the country for my wedding. Steve and Elite Sports Group have led me in the right direction with all of my contracts and endorsement negotiations and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of their efforts.” - Jason Simontacchi

“Choosing an agent is very tough - especially for a young player at the beginning of his career.  But I was truly blessed that my first agents were Matt and Steve at Elite Sports Group.  Throughout my nine seasons of professional baseball, I’m happy to add they were my only representatives.  Their work ethic and attention to detail are first-rate, and I know that they truly cared about me as a player and a person.  They aren’t just my agents - Matt and Steve are part of my family." - Reggie Willits
