2013 IBI Prospect Book: A quick update

Okay, I have been getting a lot of questions with regard to the availability of the 2013 IBI prospect book so I wanted to post a quick update on where things are with it. I do not yet have a firm date as to when it will be available, but my hope is that I will have it available for purchase before the end of the month.

Due to the Indians much busier offseason I was delayed in getting it started this year, and I also have much more information in it (there will be 200 scouting reports in all and even more international players for the Indians). As a result, the writing process has been slow and time consuming.  At the moment I am still finishing up some of the scouting reports and hope to have all the writing done this week, and then will move on to the next stage which is putting the book together and getting it published.

This year I may no longer take direct orders and all sales may have to be done on-line or at the team shops. I am still working through that, though the reason I may not take direct orders is due to cost and time constraints. I will be out of town a great amount from now through the end of March because of two big, long trips that are planned, which would limit my ability to fill direct orders. Also, eliminating direct orders may allow me to keep the cost down where it is the same price as last year or maybe even less.

As a note, last year the book first became available on February 23rd directly through me and became available for sale on-line on February 28th, so things are still on track for a similar release date. Thanks for the continued support and I should have a more formal update in a week.

Tony, as you know, I`m one of your books biggest fans. Just an absolute must for any Tribe fan, especially so for those keeping up with the minor leaguers & those who go to the minor league games or will be attending spring training. I`ll be first in line for my copy! Thanks in advance for all the hard work you do to make it a reality!!

I look forward to it. I enjoyed last years book and I am sure there will be more interest this year with the interest in the Indians up due to the "positive and aggressive " off season by the Tribe. Keep up the good work.
