Buy Premium, get Dollar Sign Free

by Dave Pease


It's coming up on a year since the Baseball Prospectus edition of Kevin Kerrane's classic book on scouting, Dollar Sign on the Muscle, was released. We predicted around that time that Dollar Sign would become our best-selling self-published book.

Now, I'm happy to confirm that our optimism was justified: We've sold more copies of Dollar Sign than anything else we've ever published. To celebrate, we're giving away the Dollar Sign on the Muscle e-book with every yearly Baseball Prospectus Premium subscription sold through the 2014 playoffs.

Excerpt: The Monte Carlo

When you sign up or renew a Baseball Prospectus Premium subscription from now through the end of the playoffs, you'll get all the coverage and analysis you've come to expect from Baseball Prospectus, and you'll also get access to the Dollar Sign e-book directly from us. The e-book is available in DRM-free PDF, MOBI, and EPUB formats, and can be accessed in the Digital Downloads section of your profile page while logged in at BP. That's a $9.99 value, absolutely free with your yearly Premium subscription.

Excerpt: Ellis Clary

A lot of nice people said a lot of nice things about Dollar Sign when we were lining up promotional quotes for the book, but here's something beautiful that we got too late to put on the cover:

"The story of a quest is one of the most basic and essential narratives in human existence. Kevin Kerrane strains the Homeric through the voices of American baseball scouts, those journeymen who search the sandlots for raw athletic potential. Dollar Sign on The Muscle was essential reading when it first arrived nearly three decades ago. And now, as big money has arrived to magnify the entire dynamic, Kerrane has returned to update his classic.

"They use 'inside baseball' as a term to suggest esoteric knowledge. That's ridiculous. The inside is where anything worth knowing actually begins to matter." -- David Simon, creator, The Wire and Treme

Excerpt: The Young Scout

Enjoy the free e-book, and here's hoping your team makes it deep into the playoffs this year.
