Several of you have asked about purchasing Pirates Prospects shirts in the past, especially since we switched over to a new logo. We now have a limited supply of shirts available, in both black and white. The initial order is small, with only three sizes available (M, L, XL). If the shirts get a good response, I’ll add some more sizes in the future. You can purchase your shirt on the products page of the site, which has just been re-designed. The products page also features the 2014 Prospect Guide, along with clearance copies of our 2013 books.
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.
