A true story about the greatest pitcher you've never heard of



A play by Jonathan A. Goldberg

Directed by Courtney Ulrich

with James B. Kennedy and Christine Pumariega

The heartbreaking play about George Edward "Rube" Waddell, the greatest lefty pitcher of the deadball era, comes to FringeNYC.  

The play begins in a ratty Texas hotel where the down-and-out former ballplayer is awaiting his last chance at the big leagues.  He hires the Reptile Girl from a local circus to keep him company -- and sober.  They share a long night of secrets, pain, and past regrets.

After playing to sold out shows in Minnesota, Indianapolis, and San Francisco -- Shelby Company brings this heartbreaking baseball story to FringeNYC
