The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Books & DVD/BLU-RAY - Cal­ico Joe

YOU don’t have to be a base­ball fan to en­joy this mov­ing story that’s a change from Gr­isham’s trade­mark le­gal thrillers.

Paul Tracey was just a kid in 1973 when his fa­ther War­ren, a mean pitcher, ended the ca­reer of Paul’s idol, home- run spe­cial­ist ‘ Cal­ico’ Joe Cas­tle.

Fast for­ward and the abu­sive fa­ther Paul shunned af­ter that tragic day, is dy­ing of can­cer and Paul takes him on a jour­ney of re­demp­tion to meet Cal­ico Joe, the man whose life one ma­li­cious ball changed for­ever.
