Former Professional Baseball Player and Author Frank Catalanotto will be here speaking about and signing his memoir, Heart & Hustle.
Join Frank Catalanotto on his unlikely journey from Little Leaguer to Big Leaguer. Heart & Hustle is a combination memoir and instruction guide for every player in any sport who has felt the sting of being overlooked or told they weren't good enough. It's a guide for players of all ages with stories of how Frank's perseverance, drive and
desire--his heart and hustle--led him to a fourteen-year career in the big leagues. With a foreword by MLB All-Star Michael Young and back cover blurbs by Bob Costas, Tom Verducci and Carlos Delgado, Heart & Hustle also contains 16 pages of full color photos tracing Frank's journey to the big leagues. Heart & Hustle is also an instruction guide for parents of young athletes with tips on how to be supportive and encouraging, just as Frank's parents, Frank and Sharon were. The strong support of his parents, brother and sister and later his wife and daughters, played a huge role in Frank's success.
