— Mick Foley’s second novel, titled “Scooter” will be released on 8/23. The book is named after New York baseball icon Phil “Scooter” Rizzuto. The story is about a kid growing up as a baseball fan in the Bronx in the 60s and 70s. He was shot in the leg by his father at the age of 8 and has a bad limp, but his love for baseball as a teenager helps him through a tough period growing up.
— It’s expected that movie rights to Foley’s first novel, “Tietam Brown”, should be finalized very shortly, with a big name director attached to the project. Foley himself has projected the idea of Terry Funk playing the role of Tietam’s father several times.
