Don and Michael coach a Little League team. To Don, the only fun is winning. To Michael, who couldn't tell a fielder's choice from a fungo, fun lies in the playing. Richard Dresser's two-person comedy takes this odd couple through an entire season. You can predict the eventual melding of minds, but the curves life throws them make for a fun evening at Scripps Ranch Theatre. Walter Murray gives Michael a clean arc from bumbling newcomer to hardcore horse-hider. John Nutten has the juicier part and gives it one of the year's funnier performances. Don has four-alarm, anger management issues (if it weren't for baseball, he confesses, Don would dream almost exclusively about "revenge and sex"). Don's a control freak, but Nutten (and director Robert May) cuts through the stereotype by showing that he actually means well. Don just keeps shooting himself in the foot. His solution? Get a bigger gun.
