2018 was a big year for us at Pinstriped Prospects. This year we set a new record for total page views, a new record for monthly page views, and a new record for daily page views. But we also grew as a website and media outlet. Our video coverage expanded, we brought you comprehensive coverage of minor league spring training for the first time and even had some instructional league coverage.
This past year was not without its own issues. We launched our new website in March and ended up crashing the site for four days. But we got it back up and running; we brought you our Yankees player database which is an undertaking to maintain. And has usual we are working on bringing you as many player profiles as possible.
Our audience embraced us and trusted us to bring them the best Yankees minor league coverage on the web, and we try our very best to give that to you. To all of you who have joined us on this journey and those who have stayed with us over the years, we thank you.
We would not be here if it weren’t for you. If you did not want this type of coverage of the minors, we would not be doing this. We had over 1,251,900 people visit Pinstriped Prospects this year, generating over 3,381,500-page views while New York-residents make up more of our readership than any other city we have also had visitors from Japan, Korea, Australia, Brazil, the United Kingdom and more.
Thank you all for reading the website, interacting with us on social media and everything else you do for us. It is our hope that we take the success we had in 2018 and expand on it in 2019. Tomorrow is the first day of the new year, and we will be sharing with you some of the updates we will be having for 2019, we think you will enjoy it.
Share our site with your friends and family. Meet a Yankees fan on the street? Tell them to check us out. We will be here to give you more information on the prospects coming up. We are also expanding our team to provide you with more. Tell us what you want to see we are forever making updates to our coverage.
Help us expand and grow by taking part in our donation drive. If we got just 1% of our audience to sign up for a recurring $60 annual donation, we would have the money to take Pinstriped Prospects to a level never seen. That is write just 1%, that is 12,519 people out of 1,251,900+ people. We are even working on a series of premium perks for those who sign up for a recurring donation, so if you have any feedback on what you would want, let us know.
If you have a business and want to reach our audience, reach out to us. We are looking for advertisers and sponsors to help offset the cost of providing coverage of the minor league system. We love to hear from you.
For now, everyone here at Pinstriped Prospects wants to thank you for making us a part of your life and your Yankees fandom.
