It offers a no-holds barred approach toward improving the reader's acumen on various topics such as how to sell more cold beer, warm hotdogs and popcorn each time a fan visits the ballpark while protecting per cap margins; why free tickets historically have been an absolute sin that winds a franchise into a revenue purgatory for multiple seasons no matter how you spin it; and where prospecting for new business means cultivating retention as well as referrals from your current fan base.

Minor league baseball general managers focus their time on revenue generation, selling massive amounts of group tickets to local companies and non-profits, developing merchandise and logos around re-branded team names based on food groups or small animals, creating crazy single game marketing promotions that attract community and media attention, delivering fantastic food and beverage options that cause fans to drive for two hundred miles to open their wallets for the right to experience it, configuring unique sponsorships that activate for local businesses that drive traffic back through the sponsor's doors, as well as manage a front office combination of paid staff and free interns, most of whom are fresh out of high school or college and working in their first job ever.
