PLAY BALL! Changes for the 2009 season!
As we anxiously await the start of the 2009 season, a season which should see an increasing number of our Starting Lineup
clients reach the Major Leagues, we are excited to announce some changes to our site which we hope will make the customer
experience more pleasant. First, many of you may have noticed our use of slide show technology to provide multiple pictures
of new items. We will continue to revise item listings to include these slide shows, providing you multiple views of
all items in our inventory.
10:28 am cst
Also, we are currently revising our page structure to break out our client inventory
into multiple pages with fewer items per page, which should make your viewing experience easier. You can jump from page
to page to find items you are interested in versus having to scan down a single long page and list of items.
after receiving numerous customer requests, we have begun listing prices on the individual items listings on each client page.
Prices include our standard price and special discounted pricing available only to our Beyond the Dugout members.
We are excited about a number of new clients we added last season and in the off-season, as well as a large number of new
clients we anticipate adding this year. We truly appreciate the players who select our company as their marketing partner
and hope to continue bringing our customers unique authentic game used items from the top names in the game!
