Frederick Keys Third Baseman Joins Firm’s Stellar Client Roster of Baseball Professionals
Baltimore, Md. (December 1, 2014) – Winpoint (formerly known as Geier Financial Management), one of the industry’s leading financial management firms designed to meet the unique needs of professional baseball players, announced today they added Baltimore Orioles third base prospect Jason Esposito to its roster of clients consisting of more than 45 retired and 20 active baseball professionals. Esposito will join a long line of notable professional baseball player clients at Winpoint such as Cal Ripken Jr., Eddie Murray, Mark Teixeira, David Robertson, Willie Randolph, Ken Singleton, Dennis Martinez, and 2013 1st round selection, Colin Moran.
Esposito, 24, was originally drafted in the 7th round (205th overall) of the 2008 MLB June Amateur Draft from Amity Regional High School in Woodbridge, Connecticut by the Kansas City Royals, but opted to attend Vanderbilt University. Three years later, Esposito officially kicked off his professional baseball career after being selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2nd round (64th overall) of the 2011 First-Year player draft. For the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Esposito served as the first and third baseman for the Delmarva Shorebirds in Salisbury, Md. and Frederick Keys in Frederick, Md., the Orioles Single-A affiliates. The 6’2” right-handed bat ended a fine 2014 season by receiving an invitation to represent the Orioles in the Arizona Fall League.
“We are thrilled to add Jason, a young, but already accomplished pro baseball player, to our all-star client roster of professional athletes,” said Joe Geier CPA, PFS and President of Winpoint. “As our client portfolio continues to grow, we look forward to further capitalizing our expertise in the financial management and professional baseball industries, as well as continuing to build our clients’ financial security for the future.”
Capping off the 2014 season with the Keys, Esposito was named a recipient of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, making him the first Keys player to win a Gold Glove. Deserving of the award, Esposito paced all Carolina League third baseman in fielding percentage (.960), putouts (83) and assists (257) in 118 games, while also finishing tied for the lead in double plays (19). In a near-flawless effort, Esposito did not make an error through his first 38 games of the season. In addition, in over a span of127 games, Esposito hit .272 with nine home runs and 50 RBIs, while doing most of his damage after the All-Star break, hitting .320 over his final 67 games of the season.
