With a juris doctor from Boston University, attorney Marc Rovner resides in East Rockaway, New York, and manages business development for BETA Abstract LLC and its five offices in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Beyond his responsibilities as an attorney, Marc Rovner is a passionate fan of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) New York Mets.
The New York Mets traded Jay Bruce to the Cleveland Indians in August 2017, but the team decided to bring back the veteran outfielder by signing him to a three-year, $39 million contract on January 11, 2018. Bruce first joined the Mets in August 2016 after spending the first nine seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Reds. He hit 37 home runs, drove in 94 runs, and recorded a .245 batting average in 153 games with New York. The Indians won 42 of 51 games after acquiring Bruce, who hit seven home runs and drove in 26 runs.
Although he has predominantly played right field throughout his career, the 30 year old is expected to spend some time at first base for the Mets as the team allows Dominic Smith to establish himself as an everyday player in the outfield. A first-round pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft, Bruce is a three-time MLB All-Star who has 277 home runs and a .249 batting average in 1,416 career games.
