Ivan Rodriguez, a catcher with the Texas Rangers major league baseball team, signed several one-year, terminable-at-will, representation contracts with Speakers of Sport (plaintiff), a company that provided representation to athletes. In exchange for representing Rodriguez and securing endorsements for him, Speakers of Sport took a percentage of what Rodriguez was paid. ProServ (defendant), a competing sports representation company, attempted to lure Rodriguez away from Speakers of Sport by promising to get him between $2 million and $4 million in endorsement contracts if he signed with ProServ. Rodriguez agreed and signed a representation contract with ProServ. However, ProServ was unsuccessful in securing any significant endorsements for Rodriguez. One year later, Rodriguez left ProServ and signed with a different agency. Speakers of Sport filed suit against ProServ in federal district court alleging that ProServ fraudulently promised Rodriguez that it could secure endorsements resulting in Rodriguez terminating his contract with Speakers of Sport. The district court granted ProServ’s motion for summary judgment and Speakers of Sport appealed.
