LAS VEGAS -- Bret Saberhagen, the two-time Cy Young Award winner from Cleveland High in Reseda, has just joined the agent business.
West Coast Sports Management, the Pasadena-based firm headed by former Dodgers general manager Dan Evans, hired Saberhagen this week, and his primary responsibilities will be to evaluate and recruit pitchers.
Saberhagen, 44, had been out of baseball since 2006, when he resigned as baseball coach at Calabasas High. After three years as an assistant coach and two years as head coach -- serving on a volunteer basis -- he said he had tired of everything but the coaching -- ordering uniforms, maintaining fields, dealing with parents.
‘What I really enjoyed was coaching,’ Saberhagen said. ‘That became 10% of what I was doing.’
