Sax also is registered as a financial adviser with the NFL and works with a few retired football players.On his company's Web site, Sax's value statement says, "I believe that every relationship is a two-way street, with open communication as the paramount factor. As my client, we will make investment decisions together, which are focused on your financial objectives and are continually monitored and changed as needed. I will serve as your financial coach, and will conduct our relationship with integrity, honesty, confidentiality and a positive attitude."
Sax said former teammates, many of whom he visited with Aug. 2 at Dodger Stadium for the Dodgers' celebration of the 1980s, think what he's doing is a "pretty cool thing because they've seen the same things that I've seen."Now working in the business world, Sax is enjoying the same type of success he did in the Majors during a career in which he made five All-Star teams, earned 1982 National League Rookie of the Year honors and stole 444 bases, not to mention the 1988 World Series championship he won with the Dodgers. "Business couldn't be better right now," Sax said.
