I realize this is a smaller pool of stuff and not as accessible, but has anyone ever seen or read a really great baseball play? I've always been surprised that baseball hasn't had more of a place in theater given what I see as its inherent theatricality (the movement, some of the language), but I see or read just about every play related to baseball I hear of and very little has ever struck me. Take me out is a decent play with some lovely baseball-centered monologues, but it's not really *about* baseball. August Wilson's Fences is probably the best one that I know of. That's a pretty short list.
And no, I've never seen Damn Yankees. that's one that I missed.
Fences by August Wilson is kind of a baseball play and I believe it won both a Tony and a Pulitzer. James Earl Jones starred in it on Broadway
