Overview

Joe Riley covers Chicago sports for The Sentinel, which is about to do some downsizing. Riley’s routine of lazy journalism and serious drinking isn’t helping the situation. He’s offered a choice: fly to Arizona to cover the Cubs’ training session or start getting used to unemployment. Riley is less than thrilled at the prospect. Against the odds, Riley meets the challenge and begins to turn his life around.

    A humorous look at baseball behind the scenes.

    Joe Riley is a reporter turned sportswriter for the Chicago Sentinel. Due to a newspaper strike, he agrees to follow the Cubs in spring training. This leads to some laugh out loud stories of his dealings with ballplayers, reporters and his boss. Gene Wojciechowski has hit a home run with his latest offering.

    Wojo hits a grand slam

    As a Chicago-native, I love the Cubs. Live and die for the Cubs. Read everything I can about them. This is without a doubt one of the best books I've ever read about the Cubs (and yes, I know it's fiction, but it doesn't read that way). I remember Wojociechowski covering Chicago for the Trib and his baseball knowledge comes out in the book. The behind the scenes stuff is great, the one-liners hilarious and the ending a shock. Buy this book and thank me later.
