Earlier this year, Pirates Prospects released two books. The first book, the 2011 Prospect Guide, covered the farm system, with profiles on every player, as well as other key information. It’s a resource that can’t be matched, and provides the most in-depth look of the system that you can find anywhere. The 2011 Annual took a look at the major league team, with several articles on the past and present Pittsburgh teams, including a very detailed look at Andrew McCutchen’s defense.
If you haven’t purchased your copies, now is a great time to do so. For one week, you can buy both the digital and print versions of the 2011 Prospect Guide, and the digital version of the 2011 Annual, for just $20 plus shipping and handling. The Triple Pack would normally cost $30. Buying the print version of the Prospect Guide alone would normally cost you $20. Now for the same price you can get the print version, a digital version for use on your e-reader or mobile devices, and the Annual.
This offer will run for one week, expiring at 11:59 PM EST on May 23rd, or while supplies last. The digital books will be provided as an instant download, while the print version will be shipped no later than the first business day following the purchase. All proceeds from the books help the site grow, allowing us to provide the coverage you’ve seen this year out of Spring Training, along with the live coverage of Anthony Rendon, the Altoona Curve, the West Virginia Power, Jameson Taillon’s debut, and other teams and players in, or related to, the system.
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.
