Long anticipated update about the rivalry between New York's two famous baseball teams to arrive in time for the start of the 2008 baseball season. The September Collapse of the Mets and the ongoing controversy surrounding the Mitchell Report and banned substances in baseball will be addressed.

Author Neil Spagna announced today that the long awaited update to his award winning first book, "Welcome To Pottersville" will be published in hardcover to coincide with the beginning of the baseball season.

Tentatively sheduled for an April 28th release date, the book will include insights on the September collapse of the New York Mets, the Mitchell Report, and the current state and future of New York baseball as the final season of both Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium commences.

The book, originally planned for an October 2007 initial publishing run was postponed by the author. "I thought I had a manuscript that was ready for the marketplace. Then the sudden September collapse of the Mets and the release of the Mitchell Report and all of the controversies surrounding illegal substances in baseball made the book seem aged before its time. I couldn't see a book about New York baseball without tying in these topics in some sort of meaningful way," said Spagna. "I feel good about the results."

As he did with the paperback version, Mr. Spagna will donate a generous portion of his royalties to The Imus Ranch. A working cattle ranch for kids with cancer, The Imus Ranch is run by Don and Deirdre Imus and is located in Ribera, New Mexico.

The book will be available at Borders in Fairfield, CT as well at all major internet booksellers such as,,, and
