What People are Saying About This
If you want to know what really goes on behind the scenes in baseball, and also be entertained by a wickedly funny, juicy mystery, Big Leagues is your ticket to the ballpark.
Cat is the kind of character you'll want to see a lot more of. She's brilliant but flawed, awkward yet graceful, strong but endearingly vulnerable. I rooted for her, feared for her and in the end fell in love with her.
As a sportswriter who covered the Yanks and Mets for 19 years, I can say without question Jen Estes covers all the bases in showing fans a world they never get to see. She throws high hard ones at players, flaks and front office big wigs - and it all rings true. I can't wait to see what Jen Estes has on deck for us in the next book in this series. Big Leagues is a walk-off home run! (Nat Gottlieb, HBO Boxing, former columnist for the Star-Ledger and author of "Stinger" and "The Zukovka Experiment")
