Review roundup, April 17

♦ Tom Hoffarth’s latest 30/30 entry: Ruling Over Monarchs, Giants & Stars: True Tales of Breaking Barriers, Umpiring Baseball Legends and Wild Adventures in the Negro Leagues.

Only a Game host Bill Littlefield offered his thought’s on John Grisham’s Calico Joe (scroll down about half way). Upshot: “some of the baseball elements of Calico Joe struck me as carelessly executed, or perhaps insufficiently edited. Grisham writes of a foul ball ripped down the right field line: If it had hit first base coach Ernie Banks, ‘he would have been seriously maimed.’

“Has anyone ever been UNseriously maimed?”
