The New York Jets were relatively quiet during the NFL’s free agency frenzy, which began March 13, 2012 – the date likely to be remembered for Peyton Manning’s departure from Indianapolis, which rendered him a Colt in the same regard as the city of Baltimore.

In 2010, Massapequa resident Frank Nappi had a hit with his novel, The Legend of Mickey Tussler, the story of an autistic youth who ended up starring for a minor league team in Milwaukee during the 1940s. The novel was successful enough to be the basis of a 2011 television movie, A Mile in His Shoes, one starring Dean Cain and Luke Schroder, son of Ricky Schroder, who played Mickey.
In April, Skyhorse Publishing is bringing out the sequel, Sophomore Campaign, which details Mickey’s second season in pro ball and his continuing struggles in the rough and tumble world of minor league baseball.
