Kevin Markey always feels a thrill when baseball spring training opens in Florida in February. Where he lives, snow usually covers the ground at that time of year. The opening of the major league camps is like the annual return of robins—it means spring is just around the corner. M/p>
Kevin is the author of Slumpbuster, Wall Ball, and Wing Ding—the hilarious first, second, and third books in his Super Sluggers series of baseball adventures—and several books of nonfiction. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with his wife and two children, and a lovable yellow-haired dog named Happy. He bats left, throws left, and types with both hands.
