Donate to SoxProspects.com
As you know, we've kept SoxProspects.com 100% free to the public since
2003, and we hope to do so for the foreseeable future. As you may have
also noticed, we've branched out quite a bit in recent years in terms of
content and new features. But with some of those new features have come
increased costs, while ad-based revenue has generally remained steady.
We ask our readers for donations to help keep the site free for
everyone. Donations help cover site costs in three primary areas: (1)
scouting costs; (2) travel costs for other first-hand coverage (player
columns, Q&As, team beat columns, etc.); and (3) web-hosting costs. In
the first area, we hope to continue more regular scouting throughout New
England, Salem, Greenville, and Fort Myers. In terms of web hosting and community forum costs, the site
resides on four servers, each with their own set of annual fees.
One thing I'd like to note is that while we've remained free, other
baseball sites charge for content in the range of $40 to $90 per year.
We'd like to think that we'd be worthy of comparable rates if we ever
decide to go that route, but we've decided that we want to
keep the site free for as long as we can. Donations from regular readers
go a long way towards making that happen.

for visiting the site and all of our forum members for posting!
