Dear Readers,

As we often mention, has been providing free content to Red Sox Nation since 2003. We earn some revenue from our ads, but unfortunately that revenue is generally not enough to cover our costs, which include travel expenses to scout games in New England, Virginia, South Carolina, and Florida, and technical expenses such as hardware, software, hosting fees, and subscriptions. We’ve been able to cover our costs in each of the the past couple years thanks to donations from our generous readers. It’s worth noting that similar baseball prospect sites charge for content in the range of $35 to $70 per year -- we'd like to think that we'd be worthy of comparable rates if we ever decided to go that route, but we’d prefer to operate on ad revenue and donations if possible. If you’re able donate, we thank you profusely - it's truly appreciated!

We’re offering three options for readers to donate this year:

(1) GiveStep – GiveStep allows readers to support SoxProspects by making donations customized to certain Red Sox-centric metrics. For example, you could pledge to donate 50 cents for every Red Sox win in 2017. Or you could pledge $1 for every Mookie Betts home run, 50 cents for every Xander Bogaerts RBI, $2 for every Eduardo Rodriguez win, or 25 cents for every Andrew Benintendi base hit. You can customize the donation amounts, players, teams, and stats for any major league player. (Unfortunately, minor league stats are not supported yet). You also have the option to cap the amount. The donation isn't actually charged to your card until the end of the season, or you could choose to be charged once you hit your cap. Check out GiveStep’s FAQ for more information.
(2) Patreon – Patreon allows SoxProspects Podcast listeners to support the Podcast by donating on a per episode basis - $1, $2, or $5 per episode. We provide “rewards” for each donation level. For $1 per episode, supporters will get a private RSS and audio feed of the Podcast and the right to move their podcast questions to the front of the queue. For $2 per episode, donors will also get their name listed with other supporters on the Podcast page, as well as access to a quarterly exclusive chat with the SoxProspects brass. For $5 per episode, donors will also get a personal shout out at the end of each episode and the ability to be a call-in guest on the Podcast after hitting a threshold of $50 in donations. 
(3) Donation Drive – During June and early July each year, we run our annual Donation Drive where we accept donations via PayPal. We’ve had tremendous success with this drive in the past thanks to our generous readership. Specific details on the Donation Drive will follow in early June. If you want to donate during the drive (or earlier), thank you again!  To donate, click on the Donate button to the right, which will bring you to  All payments are secured through PayPal, although you don't need a PayPal account to contribute.  

As always, thanks to our supporters, readers, and listeners!
