Marc Anthony

Jay Z’s got some competition in the sports management world all thanks to Marc Anthony, who just started his own company and ALREADY signed a pretty huge client.

Anthony just announced the creation of Magnus Media … Marc’s version of Roc Nation Sports … and already inked Reds closer Aroldis Chapman, who holds the record for the fastest pitch ever recorded (105 mph).

Anthony’s not going at it alone — he’s partnered up with Praver Shapiro Sports Management — a sports agency that focuses on MLB players.  Roc Nation Sports did something similar, initially partnering with CAA which is a smart move.

Anthony’s been involved with Major League Baseball for years and famously sang the National Anthem at Shea Stadium in 2001 when baseball resumed after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
