Welcome to the New Year. Looking back at 2009, it's amazing to see how many people you come in contact with that help in an effort. That's the case with this thank you of sorts from the Business of Sports Network, and The Biz of Baseball. What's funny (or not, if I missed putting you on the list) is that as big as this list is, I'm sure there is someone I've missed. Don't be surprised if more are added over the course of the day...
First off, a big thanks goes out to those at the Business of Sports Network that provide content for our readers: Matthew Coller, Tim Collins, Jordan Kobritz, Jeff Levine, Evan Knuckles, Devon Teeple, Joe Tetreault, and Pete Toms
Our thanks and New Year's wishes goes out to...
