Last week, I created a new Facebook page for the site. The reason for the change was that the old page was still showing “Buccofans.com” as the name. That was something that I couldn’t change, per Facebook’s policies. Therefore, I had to create a new page for the site.
The old page will no longer receive updates from the site, and will soon be deleted. To continue receiving site updates via Facebook, join the new page. And for those of you who haven’t already joined the Facebook page, go ahead and join the new site now to receive alerts on Facebook when a new story is uploaded to the site.
Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
