About the Author

Robert McCartha always loved baseball. He played sandlot, Dixie Youth Baseball, and in the Columbia, South Carolina, Colt League. When McCartha was seven years old, he decided to pick a favorite baseball team. He settled on the Chicago White Sox.

Joe Horlen joined the team in 1961, and McCartha followed him for his entire career.

McCartha quit playing baseball and went on to letter in tennis at Newberry College. After graduating, he owned and managed a chain of sports-collectible and mail-order stores.

McCartha first met Horlen in 1988. They renewed their friendship in 2013, and McCartha was thrilled to hear stories of the White Sox from one of its stars. Horlen graciously gave dozens of interviews about his life, and McCartha used them to write Texas Heat, Chicago Fire.

McCartha and his wife, Linda, are now enjoying their retirement in Columbia, South Carolina.
