Book Release: To Whom it Concerns

It’s been a long hot season filled with many ups and downs. Everyone has worked so hard to get to this point-the final game. But ugh. It’s 90 degrees, no shade and no breeze. It’s going to be a miserable day…or is it?

To Whom It Concerns, unfolds with a mix of humor, anxiety, and overwhelming pride, inning by inning, as Lia-Mae Kass captures the intense emotions of a mother watching her son navigate the challenges of a baseball game with Autism. Michael, equipped with determination and the unwavering support of Coach Carter, his teammates, and his family, steps onto the field. Readers are invited into a world where every crack of the bat and every missed play becomes a moment of triumph and self-discovery—a celebration of resilience on the baseball diamond.
