“NEAR MINT” written by Lane Richins

“Cracker” Jack Patterson has given his life to baseball. He played for a decade as the third-string catcher on half the teams in the majors. He hosts a baseball call-in radio program. He owns a baseball card shop. Baseball has been good to him. But something is missing. With the help of his baseball scout best friend, the woman next door he’s developed feelings for, a precocious 11-year looking for a father, and Dodgers legend Sandy Koufax, will Jack learn there is life outside of baseball? A comedy about living the game, loving the game, and leaving the game.

Near Mint plays April 28 through May 13, 2023.
