THEATER REVIEW: “Rounding Third”

Beer-swigging Don (Torre Younghans) has been coaching Little League baseball for seven years, and his son Jimmy is the team’s star pitcher. Don is a guy’s guy – “The Odd Couple’s” Felix with a baseball cap – and belongs to the “winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing” school of coaching.

Don has never forgotten his days playing the game (he can even remember opponents and scores), and is determined not to see his kid lose a game because of a dropped ball (an event he apparently still hasn’t gotten over).

“Rounding Third” plays through Nov. 9 at The Broadway Theater, 340 E. Broadway in Vista, California.
