A chance meeting creates sparks between Will and Michele, but like the pristine moments of an unforgettable baseball game, love is also a sport of luck, skill, and timing. LOVE AND BASEBALL speaks to the power of connection and the admiration of a sport played like an art form. Three meetings, over four years, bring together Will, a struggling filmmaker, and Michele, a razor-sharp philosophy teacher. Their romance is born in short bursts with uncommon honesty, resulting in the pain and passion that is created when idealized love meets real life.

Press Quotes

“With some surprising plot twists and smart rhythm, LOVE AND BASEBALL is a rare jewel that has something for everyone. Intelligent, humorous and (bases) loaded with fun, you’ll want to see this before it leaves the park, er, theatre.” —Courtney Symes, Broadway World
