Today is the official release date for the Pirates Prospects 2011 Prospect Guide. The books arrived last week, and all of the pre-sales have been shipped out, with the weekend orders going out this morning. Some of the pre-sales have already arrived, while a lot of the Pittsburgh area orders are expected to arrive today. Each shipment included a tracking number, which should have been mailed to you, allowing you to get an estimate of when your book should arrive.
For those of you who have ordered, I hope you enjoy the book. Feel free to send in some reviews, either through the comments section, or the contact form. Also, tell your friends or talk about it on your favorite Pirates’ form to help spread the word about the book.
For those of you who haven’t ordered, well, what are you waiting for? You’re not going to find a better product that details the Pirates’ farm system. Don’t accept any cheap imitations that are half the price for a fifth of the content. The 2011 Prospect Guide is 194 pages, details 237 prospect eligible players in the farm system, and includes exclusive interviews with Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie, Zack Von Rosenberg, and Zack Dodson. The book also exclusively includes the 2011 top 50 prospects, organizational depth charts, the best tools in the system, the top draft and international signing bonuses, and tons of other resourceful information.
This all comes from the site that has provided coverage of the 2009 Lynchburg Hillcats and the 2010 Altoona Curve championship runs, and which broke seven draft pick signings during the 2010 draft pick signing period, including 4th round pick Nick Kingham and 23rd round pick Jared Lakind. Pirates Prospects has been the best source for following the Pirates’ farm system, and the 2011 Prospect Guide is the best work this site has produced. Furthermore, your purchase will help the site grow, allowing for expanded coverage of the minor league system in 2011 (click the link above for details).
Purchase your copy today. All orders will be shipped out no later than the next business day after the order is completed. You can purchase your copy below.
