MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WFRV) — Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Brent Suter, who recently published a children’s book called “The Binky Bandit,” will have signed copies of the story at the Brewers Team Store beginning Monday.
The left-handed pitcher’s story centers on his golden mini doodle, Wally, and follows his wild adventures around the Suter house, which has grown in number due to a new baby.
Wally must balance his jealousy with the temptation to steal binkies while discovering that individual choices can make a big difference.
Suter’s book is based on a true story with an exaggerated twist to encourage those who read to help do their part in protecting the environment.
“What started as a funny, personal story I wrote about our mischievous dog destroying four or five of my son’s binkies every day turned into an idea for a children’s book that follows the adventures games of Wally while reinforcing simple ways to protect our planet,” Suter said. “It’s been a really fun way to use my personal experiences to connect with the kids, talk about the planet, and share some laughs about our silly dog.”
The story is published by Orange Hat Publishing, an independent family-run publisher in southeastern Wisconsin. The books are available for purchase at the Brewers Team Store at American Family Field. They’re also for sale on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, and on the Orange Hat Publishing website here.
