Framily (friends considered family)



FRAMILY (friends considered family) is historical sports fiction at its finest!


The third installment of the Lou Saulino trilogy about three friends from childhood combines the world of sports and friendship in a unique way.

The saga began with “8” Center field in New York, 1951-1957 as three thirteen year old best buddies debate the attributes of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider, and is followed by Dopey Bastid,  as the now early thirties adults reflect on the dumb decisions they have either read about or witnessed personally.

Historical sports fiction at its finest

FRAMILY “Sports is like war without the killing.”

 – Ted Turner

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.”

 – President Woodrow Wilson

Three best friends share the spotlight as the recollection of notable sporting events come to life. Get on board for the ride of your life.

YES! I’m ready to order Framily (friends considered family). I am anxious to get the inside scoop on major sporting events such as:

  • The NCAA basketball tournament featuring Magic and Bird
  • Do you believe in Miracles?  USA hockey gold in 1980
  • NY Mets incredible upset over the Orioles in the 1986 World Series
  • The initial NY Giants Super Bowl triumph – Super Bowl XXI
  • A poignant reflection on the tragic death of Thurman Munson

…………and enjoy historical sports fiction at its finest while reflecting on the true meaning of friendship.

The reviews are in and all agree:

“Saulino has developed a smart way of storytelling  via weaving his characters’ plotlines together with contemporary sports events……The book is also immaculately researched, vividly recalling each play of each game like a great sports announcer.”

 – KIRKUS Rview

“the sports discussions are authentic and entertaining. Too bad Saulino is a NY Giant fan.”

 –  Marty Lyons. Former NY Jets All-Pro defensive lineman

“the power of friendship is worth going to bat for.

 – Geoffrey Berwind, professional storytelling consultant

“Recallling the special sports moments Saulino brilliantly describes in FRAMILY was a joy.”

 – Joe Carriero, author of How to Hit Slow Pitch Softball
