I am a female who understands nothing about baseball. The last game I remember watching on TV was in about 1991 or so when the Braves made a run at the pennant.
That being said, if I had known the subject matter of this novel, I probably would not have started it. That would have been a shame.
What an awesome story...not just excellent 'John Grisham', but excellent no matter who wrote it.
Thank you, Mr. Grisham. I appreciate your using your considerable talent to share such an evocative , sweet ( in the end) story. Your Paul Tracey is a character who will not be easily forgotten.

Not a literary masterpiece, but as a baseball fan from the 60's and 70's, I loved it. Grisham does a great job of weaving players from that era into the story(especially Cubs and Mets) so that you find yourself "almost" believing that this really happened. A quick read and when you are done you'll probably google Calico Joe to check his stats.

I am from the Midwest, Ohio and grew up with the Big Red Machine. I love novels concerning sports fiction.

While I am a big fan of grishams talents, I definitely think he is at his best when he steps away from the law and writes the heart felt human interest stuff.

Entirely predictable. Hardly gripping. But a quick, easy read. Good for baseball fans, especially those who were around in the early 70's.
