    Whatever happened to Calico Joe? It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a 21-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz....

    Where does Calico Joe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top


    What other book might you compare Calico Joe to and why?

    "Teammates", although I read the hard copy not the audio copy


    What about Erik Singer’s performance did you like?

    Voice was consistent and non-invasive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it didn't happen. It took several listenings commuting back and forth to work. However, it's easy enough to leave off and pick up again.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like baseball in the 70's and were a Cubbie or Mets fan you'll love this book.
