Recognizing the truly sour mood of his father, Paul goes to the game with foreboding.
He continues by chronicling the next record that the player broke on that day when he hit a homer the second time he was up to bat. Grisham uses his great story-telling genius to bring this story to life. For instance, Grisham writes about the “rookie phenomenon’s” performance on Thursday, July 12 1973. His most popular novel, the Firm, was made into a Hollywood movie starring Tom Cruise.
Review: Calico Joe Calico Joe by John Grisham My rating: 2 of 5 stars Calico Joe is a baseball story that's not really about baseball. The book reveals the continuing consequences of that 1973 battle on Warren Tracey and Joe Castle and both of their families.
Calico Joe was a prodigious rookie having the season of a lifetime when his career is ended by the pitcher. In the multi-tasking manner of small town businesses, this is both a TV-heavy sports bar and a family restaurant. In describing Castle’s enthusiasm on the field, Mr. Grisham observes why so many of us love baseball.
Meanwhile, an over-the-hill Mets pitcher, Warren Tracey, is with his sixth major league team (he also bounced in and out of the minors). This is written where the reader can almost see this play out in slow motion and watch the player go down like a sack of flour. A love letter to the power of books and friendship.
female readers, whilst French, German, etc. Book did a good job of describing the passion in sport, combined well with the importance of family and values we should all hold dear. The forbidden pitch is the key event in John Grisham’s delightfully readable and lively “Calico Joe.” Joe formally is Joe Castle, who is suddenly pulled from the Double-A team in Midland, Texas, in the summer of 1973 to join the Chicago Cubs as a replacement infielder.
‧ I feel like I can watch baseball now and know enough to enjoy it because of Grisham's story, and that is exactly why I read. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 April 2020, I learned a number of things about Baseball.

Review #1 by Ron Kaplan. Suffice to say he knows his way around the ballpark as well as he does a courtroom, lingo and all.

A moving and fond look at the world of pro baseball, Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2013. As a Brit I must say that this book will be of very little interest to most people unless they have an abiding interest in baseball.
translations are unlikely to appear (unlike possible Spanish, Korean or Japanese versions). Calico Joe, by John Grisham, is a novel about two major league baseball players, their families, and their fans. Grisham doesn't do this sort of thing as well as he does the courtroom thrillers, but I'd rank this as the finest of his attempts at more literary fiction.
