MISSION VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/27/12 -- Embark Holdings, Inc., formerly Godfather Media Inc., (PINKSHEETS: GFMD) is pleased to announce a partnership between its subsidiary Elite Representation Associates, LLC and the Nicaragua based Academia Cinco Estrellas (Five Star Academy).
ERA, LLC, will be responsible for facilitating player workouts with MLB organizations and contract/signing bonus negotiations. With the minimum international signing age being 16, the majority of the signing bonuses offered reach well into the six figures. To date, the Kansas City Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert has received the largest signing bonus paid to a Nicaraguan. In the past, ACES has served a key role in the signing of Colorado Rockies' outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda, Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, and Kansas City Royals' catcher Cheslor Cuthbert.
ERA president Bryan Swalley states, "This is an extraordinary opportunity for us to partner with an established academy such as ACES. ACES has a great history of getting their players signed by MLB organizations and ERA is very fortunate to aid in their contract negotiations."
ACES is located 30 miles outside the Nicaraguan capital city of Minagua. It features a facility that houses, trains, and educates up to 25 players at a time.
