In addition to writing full-time, Preller plays in a men’s hardball league and coaches Little League. He compares coaching kids to “trying to hold the attention of a herd of earthworms.” He lives in Delmar, New York, with his wife, three children, cats and dog.

Read an Excerpt

The outlook wasn’t brilliant

For the Delmar Dogs that day.

All summer long the Dogs

Lost every game they played.

Yes, it’s true the Dogs had guts,

And the Dogs had heart;

But catching the baseball, well,

That was the hardest part.
