As you probably know, the Pirates Prospects 2011 Prospect Guide is available for pre-sales. The book will begin the final editing process this week, and should start printing around the start of January. That will put it on pace to be released around January 18th.
As an added bonus to pre-ordering the book, one person who places an order during the pre-sales period will win two infield box tickets to the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates home opener, which is on April 7th, 2011 at 1:35 PM. The winner will be determined from a drawing of all of the pre-sales (each book purchased will equal one entry in the drawing, and everyone who has already placed a pre-order will be entered in the drawing).
