Here’s a book for baseball fans of any age: Mickey Tussler.


Welcome to the Show: A Mickey Tussler Novel

Welcome to the Show a Mickey Tussler Novel by Frank Nappi



If you’re a baseball fan you’ve probably read Matt Christopher, Mike Lupica, and Dan Gutman to name a few. I’d like to add Frank Nappi to your list because our hero, Mickey Tussler, has autism. But it’s not just about autism. It’s a boy who has autism, in the late 194o’s early 50s in the midwest where they don’t understand that kind of thing. Plus? Mickey has a killer arm.

These kinds of feel good books always get me right in the gut. How about you? Yep, this qualifies for the Diversity Reading Challenge: Spectrum disorder).


Put me in coach, I’m ready to play!
