With Opening Up Day around the edge, I wished to upgrade our visitors on the present state of the website and also make a couple of Membership statements. This moment in 2014, we weren’t certain if FanGraphs was mosting likely to last one more 2 months, not to mention endure enough time to see the begin of the 2021 period.

Therefore, we have 2 large statements in advance of that wedding anniversary. The initial is that we’re introducing a spring Membership drive with the objective of including 2,000 brand-new Participants by the end of April. That could seem like a whole lot, yet I’m confident we can satisfy that objective.

Currently a Participant yet wish to assist us get to that objective?
