Character Breakdown: (12+ men and 5+ women)

Joe Boyd (M 40-50, A3-G5) - A middle-aged, overweight married man who is in love with baseball, especially the Senators.

Meg Boyd (F 35-45, G3-G5) - Joe's long-suffering, but loyal wife. She is lonely and misses her husband. Decides a little white lie is worth telling to save a good person.

Mr. Applegate (M 40-50, A3-G5) - The Devil in disguise as a slick salesman. A controlling, greedy smooth talker.

Sister (F 35-45 D4-G5) - A friend of Meg's and Doris's sister. Outspoken and brash, but caring. Very involved in community activities.

Doris (F 35-45 D4-G5) - A friend of Meg's. She is slightly quieter and more conservative than her sister, but still outspoken. An avid baseball fan very involved in the community.

Joe Hardy (M 20-30 A3-G5) - The 22-year-old, home run hitting alter ego of Joe Boyd. A good guy who loves that he is living out his dream, but deeply misses the life and love he left behind.

Sohovik (M 25-35 D4-G5) - A baseball player for the Washington Senators. The smartest and most level-headed of the players. Enjoys his side job of selling insurance. The unofficial leader of the team.

Smokey (M 25-35 C3-G5) - A catcher for the Washington Senators. Not the sharpest tool in the shed. Tries to be a tough guy like Rocky, but truly is not.

Van Buren (M 50-60 D4-A5) - The luckless team manager. A sort of father-figure for the team, who proudly defends them. A bit of a loose cannon.

Rocky (M 25-35 D4-B5)- A baseball player for the Washington Senators. Cocky, but a little bit dopey, too. He's a guy's guy.

Gloria Thorpe (F 25-35 B3-G5) - A probing reporter whose bottom-line is a good story for her paper. Fearless and biting.

Mr. Welch (M 50-60 D4-G5) - The owner of the Senators. Believes in Joe and believes in his team. A peacekeeper between the press and the team. Protective of Joe and the boys.

Lola (F 25-35 F3-G5) - The Devil's seductress assistant. Sexy and confident. Falls in love with Joe when her usual tricks don't work on him. Though she's done many bad things, she is a good person deep down inside.

Ensemble - Ball Players, Baseball Fans - M/F 20-60
