Overview

On a cross-country baseball tour, an aging father renews bonds with his twelve-year-old son, while simultaneously reliving his own baseball-obsessed youth. All stops on the tour's itinerary ultimately prove symbolic, as each is revealed to bear an intimate relationship with the father's present, past, and future. Woven into this inter-generational tapestry is the ubiquitous golden thread of baseball: "a joy, an escape, a refuge, and ultimately a symbol of everything that transpires outside its clean green diamond and clearly marked foul lines." Humorous, wry and sentimental, The Loving of the Game is a timeless affirmation of the joys of family, friends, baseball and life.
