In the summer of 1973 Calico Joe was the boy wonder of baseball, the greatest rookie anyone had ever seen. He quickly became the idol of every baseball fan in America, including Paul Tracey, the young son of a hard-partying and hard-throwing pitcher. On the day that Warren Tracey finally faced Calico Joe, Paul was in the stands, rooting for his idol but also for his dad. Then Warren threw a fastball that would change their lives forever.
