If this website doesn’t look like any other sports management website, that’s because we aren’t like any other sports management company.
Founder Steve Canter, a licensed attorney since 1990, created Pro Edge Sports Management more than 25 years ago. Blessed with a creative mind, Pro Edge sprouted from his authentic vision and mission to create a different type of agency, experience and stereotype.
Raised by a surgeon, he was taught the fundamental importance of doing things the right way the first time and keeping your promises. With this DNA imprinted upon him, he made it his mission to deliver genius services that were polished and punctual.
When you hire Pro Edge, you’re hiring more than a sports agency; you’re hiring geniuses who share the same vision with its founder.
The Pro Edge team is composed of geniuses with specific areas of knowledge who help maximize every opportunity for our clients. This allows our clients to focus on maximizing their various intersections throughout their careers and beyond. Simply put, we will create a brilliant game plan for you and then carry it out. That’s the Pro Edge Difference!
Once you’ve acquired the Pro Edge Difference, you will be surrounded by genius consultants who will provide you with second to none service. Whatever it is you need, our genius consultants will keep you far ahead of the competition. Our goal is for you to seamlessly focus on making it to the highest level while we provide the highest quality service.
Steve and our genius consultants have had a major impact on the baseball business. We’ve experienced ground breaking success with the MLB draft and salary arbitration as well as in free agency in the US and Asia. Pro Edge continues to leave a large footprint in baseball and beyond with the Disney film “The Rookie.” Steve, who was a hired consultant with Disney on the film, visualized Jim Morris’ life story on the big screen before anybody else did and was the architect of the film and book deals as well as Jim’s public speaking career. “The Rookie” was developed into a 150-million-dollar property and became the first ever recipient of the ESPY for Sports Film of the Year. The film is now featured in a section of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Steve expertly navigated all aspects of the draft for me and allowed me to focus on matters on the field. “Hands-on” is a good way to describe Steve and Pro Edge: they know me and my family and they get it. Gig em Pro Edge!
Steve has been on the mark with all of his advice since Day 1. Whatever I need, Pro Edge is there. This is a great company.
Steve regularly attended my games and kept me and my family up to date on the things I needed to know.
I bet on myself as a senior and Steve bet on me too. And we won that bet in a big way!
“From the first negotiation to Yankee Stadium, Pro Edge has been with me all the way. Thank you!”
I’m from a small D-2 college up in Pennsylvania. When others didn’t believe in me, Pro Edge did. I went in the 11th round but I’ve got deals with Topps, Rawlings and Nike. When I pick up the phone and call Steve answers it. Steve continues to help me a lot while Ari is also really great at keeping up with me and making sure I get everything I need equipment wise. She’s also helped me with housing and marketing. When you call her, she picks up the phone.
Pro Edge built my story, The Rookie, into a 150-million-dollar brand with Disney and also started my public speaking career. Steve Canter showed me my worth.
Pro Edge’s preparation for the draft was remarkable. They knew where I was going to get drafted and I received double the slot value. Steve’s communication with the front office in Atlanta and Pittsburgh has been incredibly helpful. This is a professional operation and they’re on top of everything!
I’ve known Steve since high school. I trust his judgment and I know he always puts me and my family first. Steve helped me navigate through free agency and got me an excellent opportunity. Steve got me a great settlement with the Dodgers in my arbitration case. When I got traded to the Marlins, Pro Edge took care of the logistics for me and my family. Steve has my back and believes in me.
Pro Edge Sports is different. They go above and beyond.
I can’t say enough about Pro Edge! I met them in the Cape and they’ve delivered on everything and then some. Any time I have a question, Pro Edge is there! I always know what’s happening with my career and Ari Tedesco kills it for me off the field!
Pro Edge has been there for me and my family with every critical decision in my career. Not only have they done great deals for me, but I trust them as people.
I met with multiple agencies before picking Pro Edge and they were the only ones who encouraged me to go to college at Clemson. Steve is honest, and he’s a perfectionist. He worked day and night for me and did everything he promised and when I call him he picks up the phone. The company has helped me as an individual and also as a player.
Steve got me a great settlement in my first salary arbitration case and a series of multi year deals. Most recently, I received a 2 year guarantee with the Cubs that increased my AAV by 49%! In anticipation of this negotiation, Pro Edge prepared a 77 page presentation on my career. I don’t get lost in the shuffle over here.
I was drafted in the 4th round as a 22 year old senior from App State. Instead of falling out of the top 5 rounds of the COVID draft and getting $20,000, Pro Edge expertly guided me to a $60,000 bonus. When I injured my arm after signing, Steve Canter was on the phone with my club and I got my surgery with the top surgeon in the world. I’m treated like a first rounder here and I appreciate that!
When Pro Edge did my first arbitration case, most baseball officials thought my value was in the 2.8-million-dollar range. But Steve Canter convinced everybody that my value was closer to 3.3 million, which is what Brett Myers received the year before in arbitration. In fact, his run support arguments were so compelling that he got me almost $460,000 more than expected! Then the next year, he helped me get a 3-year extension. Pro Edge nailed everything for me.
Pro Edge is unlike any other agency we met with and they have done an incredible job for Nolan and our family.
“Steve is the man! He did several multi-year contracts for me and helped make a great life for my family! 17 professional years together with Pro Edge”
“Pro Edge has really helped me secure my economic future. I wasn’t a high round draft choice and I’ve had to work extra hard to reach the big leagues. Steve Canter helped get me to Asia and the money I earned there was life changing. He’s also placed me in free agency twice where I got a call up and then he protected my rights expertly when I got injured. Ultimately, I have earned everything to this point in my career, but I can honestly say that Pro Edge has made a big difference for me. “
I needed elbow surgery and Steve got me in to see Dr Ellatrache at Kerlan Jobe in two days. It was amazing how quickly he made that happen! I’m making an excellent recovery and I’m back pitching in the mid 90 to upper 90’s consistently. I totally trust Steve.
“Pro Edge really helped me with every aspect of my career. They maximized my contracts and got me to excellent consultants who helped me off the field. I saw what happened to other players and Steve always looked out for me.”
Steve has represented me for 19 years. From the first round, through the minors, to the majors, to getting me paid over in Asia, and then back over to the States with the knuckleball, Pro Edge has always had my back.
“I’ve known Steve since I was 17 years old and he has been there for me the whole time. At one point I spent 6 years away from Baseball. When I wanted to play again, Steve helped me get back into the game with Seattle. He has stood by me through all of the ups and downs of a professional baseball career and works in my best interest and that of my family’s best interest too. I could not ask for better representation, counsel and loyalty.”
