Every year, Christopher Crawford, now of Baseball Prospectus, published a yearly draft book. This book featured 100 to 150 scouting reports of upcoming draft candidates, as well as other goodies regarding the following year's draft.
After Chris decided to graciously hand over his site, DraftToTheShow.com, I want to do something similar. I want to provide high quality content about the draft and all of its players, as well as a comprehensive prospect list for every team in the bigs.
Of course, this is no easy task. This will require travelling to showcases, collegiate summer All-Star games, and minor league games, as well as watching hours upon hours of minor league footage. The latter we can do for free, but the former will require some cash. That's where you come in!
The money you put into this project will go directly into funding everything for this book. Travel, lodging, any possible equipment needed, and the like. I want myself and my writers to see as many games as possible to give you the most content there is to offer, but we want to do that with as little cost as possible. And that we will do. The more funding we receive, the more games we will see, and the more reports we will write.
You will still be able to see Top 10 prospect lists on our site for free, but access to this book will give you organizational essays, interviews with coaches and players, and reports that very few places on the internet can provide for such a low cost.
Risks and challenges
The only challenge will be trying to cover as many places in the country as possible so we can cover a bevy of minor league games and showcases. The amount will be largely predicated on funding, but at the very bare minimum, sufficient funding will cover our bases.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
