Complete Game, a play in nine innings, is a comedy with a heart. It is the fall of 1970 in metropolitan New York and everyone has a relationship with our national pastime. Baseball inevitably impacts their other relationships. Attraction or repulsion, bond or divider, job or recreation, link to the past or hope for the future, problem or resolution or some combination of all of the above. COMPLETE GAME spins a web to snare aficionado, casual fan and non-enthusiast alike.
