I just read "Calico Joe", by John Grisham

A quick and fun read.
I expected it to be heavy on baseball, but it wasn't.

A bitter old man, a hero worshiping son and an injured, former star in the making.
If you need something to read for a couple of hours, this could be it.

2. I read that one too and have to vote for Calico Joe.

I guess that's why authors write more than one book...
