On the heels of that success, Frank returned to fiction with a compelling novel about an autistic youth who becomes a big league pitcher. The Legend of Mickey Tussler was published in 2008, but it proved to be such an inspiring tale that Hollywood soon came knocking. Now, after three years of negotiations with various companies, the novel has been made into a television movie. A Mile In His Shoes is set for a Sept. 26 viewing on GMC TV, a television movie starring Dean Cain (Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) as Coach Arthur Murphy and newcomer Alex Schroder, son of Ricky Schroder, who plays the star pitcher, Mickey Tussler. Nappi told The Massapequan Observer that the GMC cable channel isn’t part of the regular programming that Nassau County residents receive. However, he said that the film could be seen through both Direct TV and Verizon Cable outlets.
