BravesCenter opens new premium message board now has a premium message board open for its subscribers. Plus, here are some exciting new details about what subscribers can expect over the next few months.

Starting Monday will have a new premium message board available to all of its premium subscribers.

The Braves Show will be a new area open exclusively to the subscribers. This board will not have lurkers or trolls from other sites, but simply intelligent and loyal Braves fans talking baseball.

Also, throughout the offseason, we will have a number of Braves major league and minor league players in for chats on the premium message board. The interaction with the Braves' players will be exclusively for subscribers.

Next month will also start a weekly audio talk show on the Braves hosted by Publisher Bill Shanks and Correspondant Skip Seda. Shanks and Seda will take your questions, through the premium message board, and discuss the topics on the audio program. This is why we are calling the premium message board "The Braves Show."

Later in the winter we also plan to add more video content exclusively for premium subscribers. This will include interviews and video of players in the Braves' minor league system.

And also plan on additional content related to Bill Shanks' book, Scout's Honor: The Bravest Way To Build A Winning Team. We will have chats with people who were featured in the book, along with additional articles featuring stories on former Braves' players. Signed copies of Scout's Honor will also be for sale on the site in the next couple of weeks.

Shanks will also now be available primarily on the premium message board to answer questions from the subscribers. There will still be weekly Q&A sessions on the free message board, but Shanks will be more available to the premium subscribers.

So if you are already a Premium Subscriber, get ready for an exciting winter of content on your Atlanta Braves. And if you're not yet a subscriber, we'd love to have you on board. Please click on this link to sign up as a Premium Subscriber.
