April 22, 2013 Contact: Steve Melia 760-522-5581 meliacomedy@gmail.com www.162yankeegames.com 162...The almost epic Journey of a Yankee Superfan Book released with rave reviews Yankee Superfan, Steve Melia, whose mission to beat all odds and attend every game in one baseball season has written a book that tells his incredible story. Melia is a standup comic and his book includes hilarious stories of events along the way. Melia set a world record by attending all 162 games in one season; 176 games over two seasons; and 167 were consecutive in the 2011 season, spanning 15 cities. Melia’s self-published book has recently been released and is getting rave reviews from Yankee fans, as well as others. “162 is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G”; “It had me laughing and crying and oh-noing”; “Couldn’t put it down. I laughed out loud – a must read!” Ten percent of the profits from this book will be donated to the Orphan’s Hope Project, which helps to support an orphanage in Guatemala. Steve and his business partners have raised over $125,000 to build a new orphanage which is set to open within the coming weeks. Steve is available for interviews and book signings. This “162 Guy” is currently on a book tour and is scheduled for Kansas City, Tampa and Seattle in the next few weeks. He will be traveling alongside the Yankees this season promoting his book and doing stand-up comedy in the various cities.
