Faust meets professional baseball in this Broadway classic.  Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil (the charming but devious Mr. Applegate) for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life (and wife) he’s left behind.   The score includes the classics “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets” , “You Gotta Have Heart” and “Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, Mo.”
