I'm happy to announce that Dollar Sign on the Muscle will be available in e-book and paperback formats in late October.

Dollar Sign on the Muscle is Kevin Kerrane's groundbreaking book on the world of baseball scouting. Long out of print and available only for a lot of money in the secondary market, Dollar Sign was named one of the 100 Best Sports Books of All Time by Sports Illustrated. For the Baseball Prospectus edition, Kerrane spent much of 2013 visiting ballparks and talking to scouts, assaying the changes in the scouting landscape. He covers his findings in a wide-ranging, brand-new chapter of the book. You'll also find extensive updates to the whereabouts of the important characters from the original Dollar Sign, and a Foreword by Houston Astros Pro Scouting Coordinator Kevin Goldstein.

The Dollar Sign on the Muscle e-book will be available from Amazon.com for Kindle devices and the iTunes bookstore for iPad and iPhone, and you can also buy it directly from us. The e-book will be produced in DRM-free PDF, MOBI, and EPUB formats, and your purchase directly from Baseball Prospectus gives you unlimited access to each of these formats. The price is $11.89, and if you pre-order the e-book from us, you'll also get free access to the PDF versions of Best of Baseball Prospectus Vol 1 and Best of Baseball Prospectus Vol 2a $15.90 value.

We'll be running a series of excerpts and other material, including chats, with Kevin Kerrane throughout October at baseballprospectus.com. We'll have more information on the new edition of Dollar Sign on the Muscle throughout the month.

I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but will this be available as a physical copy?

There is no Kindle version, then? Not that it's a major problem to get a MOBI onto a Kindle.

Scott, there will be a Kindle version. I updated the formats text in the post to be specific about this. It will be available at the end of the month on Amazon. Thanks.

But the Kindle version must be ordered directly from Amazon, right? There's no way to pre-order from BP (to get the freebies) and still get the Kindle edition? Not a deal breaker, just asking to be sure. One way or another, I'm going to buy it.

Scott, the MOBI file is compatible with what you'd get from the Kindle bookstore. The only difference is if you buy it from us you'll have to know how to put it on your Kindle yourself. Thanks!

I would like to order the paperback version of the book. Do I do this by using the Preorder link and purchasing it through the BP Store, or is this only for the EBook version? Thanks.

The paperback will be readily available via Amazon at the end of October and not just on a limited basis.
